If you want to take a break from the mundane and let it melt in your mouth, the Zeller Land is just right for you. At wineries and traditional wine taverns, in fine restaurants or at a convivial wine festival, you can enjoy fine wines and delicacies that have their origins in the beautiful landscape. The Zeller Land tastes particularly good.
Full of pride, the winery looks back on 400 years of tradition and viticultural experience in the Boos of Waldeckhof. Variety with the best quality has always been their goal and is still one of the most beautiful challenges for the winery year after year. As successors to the senior boss Friedrich-Josef Treis and his ancestors, the owners are committed to this tradition. With extensive experience, precise manual work and the courage to change, they create wine that embodies all the facets of its terroir. Origin meets future, bottle for bottle. With hand and land.
Stephan Fischer Winery
Surely there are easier tasks than taking over a traditional Riesling vineyard in the Middle Mosel in the 10th generation. But Mr Stephan Fischer was happy to take on this challenge and today he cultivates 3.5 hectares of vines exclusively on steep slate slopes. As a passionate winemaker, he faces this challenge every day anew in order to develop noble, mineral and finely fruity Moselle wines in his wine cellar, to give each wine its individual character and he is committed to the preservation of the classic, unique and landscape-shaping wine cultural landscape of the Mosel. The queen of vines and noblest grape variety in the world, the Riesling grape, he cultivates in great variety - for wine connoisseurs and discoverers, for every occasion and every taste, you will find excellent Rieslings (in the truest sense of the word) with him.
The Hallenbach winery in Zell (Mosel) owns vineyards in the best locations. The vines grow on the geographically favoured steep slopes of the slate-covered Mosel hillsides. Riesling, the noblest white wine variety in the world, forms almost exclusively the basis of these fine wines. The heat-retaining, fertile primary slate rock of the Mosel slopes allows only low yields. Some of the vines take root up to 15 metres deep in the crevices. Of the 4.5 hectares of the winery, 1.5 hectares of the vineyards are on steep slopes, with a gradient of almost 70 percent.
Winery F.J. Weis
Father and son - Peter and Matthias Weis - with a shared passion for wine, steep slopes and nature run the Weis Winery in Zell an der Mosel. Peter Weis, who already took over the winery from his father from a 300-year family tradition with a lot of ambition, continues to develop the winery with sustainable viticulture and responsible handling. Over the years, the 4-ha start-up farm has grown into a 10-ha operation. It is important to him that people can enjoy wine: You don't have to be a wine connoisseur to drink good wine, you should just trust your taste. This attitude is important to him. With Matthias' decision for his son to also start an apprenticeship as a winemaker, the succession of the family winery was quickly settled. At the Rebenhof winery in Ürzig, Matthias learned everything that goes into exceptionally good winemaking from a top winemaker until he completed his training in summer 2019. At the same time, he is already an integral part of his own winery and continues this with new and young ideas at his father's side.
Winery Reis fine wines
The passion of Nicole and Achim Reis from Briedel are top wines handcrafted from steep slope vineyards of the Mosel. The Reis winery in Briedel on the Mosel has existed for centuries as a traditional family business. Achim Reis inspires with his curiosity and creativity. His wines are the perfect and consummate combination of Roman Mosel wine heritage with innovative author-wine thinking. His creations of site wines not only captivate with their freshness and fruitiness, they are also delivered with relish in art nouveau bottles.
At the Goeres Winery, everything always revolves around wine. And that has been the case for many generations. Just as his father was a winemaker, he also took over the winery from his father. And each generation has continued the family tradition and at the same time enriched and developed the winery with new ideas and new knowledge. Out of this tradition, the family is strongly sensitive to the well-being of their vineyards, they are after all the basis for their wines and the basis for their work and that of the next generation at the Goeres Winery. Environmentally conscious and environmentally friendly viticulture are a must for them. This is what they understand by modern work, just as much as the natural, careful and meticulous vinification of their wines. At the same time, they have a clear goal in mind as to how their wines should taste: If wine lovers like you taste it and say "delicious", then they have achieved their goal.
The wine becomes what it wants to become. That is why it is important to have a feeling for your vineyards and your grapes. The Lütz winery has that. They know their vineyards. They know what makes their vines tick, how the grapes from which vineyards taste and how they develop. They have an idea of how vinification can proceed. That requires a connection with the vineyards - and their work. You need a feeling for the right moment. That's why they want to be there from the beginning and even bottle the wine themselves at the end - when it's ready. Only when it comes to drinking, you are allowed to help them.
Winery Alfred Dahm
The Dahm family has been dedicated to viticulture for generations. The combination of traditional production processes with innovative methods, make their wine a special taste experience. They are sure that you too will find your favourite wine in their wine list. During a hearty wine tasting (up to 60 people), wines from different vintages, grape varieties and quality levels are presented with expert wine information.
The Croeff vineyard is a family business that has cultivated its vineyards on a full-time basis for several generations. Their vineyards are located in the vineyards "Neefer Petersberg", "Neefer Rosenberg" and the top vineyard "Neefer Frauenberg". Here, the grapes for their fine wines partly ripened on slate soil, which gives the Riesling grapes the mineral, finely spicy taste so typical of the Mosel.
Have a nice LENZ and visit the Friedhelm Lenz wine estate in Bullay on the Mosel with the highest situated wine tavern on the Moselsteig. You can learn something from every wine year, new surprises and challenges await you. But it is precisely these that make their profession as winegrowers so extraordinarily varied. To influence nature in the best possible way requires a lot of craftsmanship and attention to detail.
Christian Schardt Wine Manufactory
The Amlinger-Schardt winery stands for the highest quality by tradition. They are at home in Bullay on the Mosel and have been growing wine for more than 100 years - in the best locations, on the best soils, with tradition and passion. Founded in 1878, the family business is now being continued in the fifth generation as Weinmanufaktur Christian Schardt. With a drive for perfection, their Weinmanufaktur Christian Schardt is sustainably successful, especially through their innovative wine concepts. In addition to the production and distribution of wines, the multi-generational business also includes a wine tavern and a vinotheque where you can taste each of their wines and products directly on site.

Wine Manufactory Walter J. Oster
With their winery, they look back on 15 generations of history. Since the beginning, they have followed their motto "Zeitgeist und Tradition" (spirit of the times and tradition), which over time has made them a particularly innovative family, for whom wine and enjoyment are top priorities. And anyone who knows the Moselle knows that viticulture here in the steep-terraced region is characterised by a very special love and passion. If you ask what makes a good wine, the term terroir always comes up as an explanation: an interplay of the factors climate, region, location and the winegrower. If all aspects come together positively, great, individual and varied wines are created.
Winery Sankt Aldegundishof
They are a quality winery with vineyards in the best locations of the wine village of Sankt Aldegund and Bremm on the Mosel. On the vast majority of the vineyard area we grow the Moselle-typical traditional grape variety Riesling, predominantly on the sun-favoured steep slopes. When cultivating their vineyards, they constantly try to harmonise the valuable experience of their ancestors with the latest research findings in the field of environment and health.
The Stein family's connection to wine can be traced back to the 16th century. They produce individual and authentic wines in their slate vineyards, from simple country wines to complex "Striehween". They achieve fair wines, fair prices with natural, environmentally friendly cultivation and growing methods in the vineyard and cellar. This means careful manual work in all areas, which they value and pay fairly. Last but not least, fairness includes affordable prices, also for special wines.
Wine & Sparkling Wine Winery Uwe Kreuter
The Kreuter winery has been cultivating their vineyard in Alf organically since 1990. Starting with 2 ha, they now cultivate 5.5 ha in the villages of Alf, Bullay and Neef. Grape varieties such as Riesling, Chardonnay, Blauer Spätburgunder are among their preferred choices, as these grape varieties lead to the best qualities in the steep slopes. A speciality is their White Elbling, which they refine into a very interesting Crémant sparkling wine in the cellar. By arrangement, they offer vineyard and cellar tours and of course wine tastings in their tasting room.
