Collection: Weingut Loersch, Trittenheim

The Loersch family has been making wines in Trittenheim (Mosel) for over 400 years. Since young Alexander Loersch took over winemaking responsibilities in 2002, the quality of the wines skyrocketed and domestic recognition quickly came in. It receives the ‘2012 Best German Wine Producer’ award in the AWC wine challenge hosted in Vienna.

Alex sees keeping low yields and rigorous selections in the vineyards as the prerequisites to making a good wine. After harvesting by hand on the steep vineyards, the grapes are packed into small plastic boxes to avoid self-crushing during transportation, then pressed gently and fermented with wild yeast at low temperature. For some wines, fermentation is done partly in old barrels to add complexity. The wines are with bright fruits and complex aromatics. This family-run winery only makes a few hundred cases of each wine each year.

The winery has gone through a re-branding and is re-named as Weingut Loersch in 2012.
