Clüsserath Ansgar

The estate is located in the community Trittenheim (Bernkastel area) in the German wine-growing region Moselle, The family has been practicing viticulture since the 17th century. After completing her studies in viticulture at the University of Applied Sciences in Geisenheim took over Eva Clüsserath, the full-time in the office of the Palatine VDP active, in 1998 the responsibility for the vinification in the parental winery. Father Ansgar continues to look after the management of the vineyards and Mother Elsbeth for the attached guesthouse and customer care. The vineyards cover nearly four hectares of vineyards in the layers Altärchen and pharmacy (Trittenheim) Rosengärtchen (Neumagen), as well Sonnenlay (Mülheim). They are mainly planted with Riesling (3.4 ha), as well as small shares of Pinot Blanc, Kerner and Müller-Thurgau. Already the first year 2001 of Eva Clüsserath caused a sensation. The fermentation takes place with natural yeasts in traditional wooden barrels. A long yeast store produces classic, terroir-stressed Rieslings. About two-thirds of the wines are dry-aged. Since the year 2003, the dry wines no longer bear predicate names, but are labeled with one to three "stars".
