The Trossen winery, in the town of Kindel, is situated less than 500 feet from the banks of the Mosel River and a few kilometres south east from the villages of Urzig and Erden.
The surrounding geology is dominated by weathered grey and blue slate, gifting the fruit fine aromas and intense minerality. Wines from Kinheim-Kindel are rarely heavy and alcoholic but instead have a delicate fragrance with a vein of salinity and cooling zest.
Since 1978, the Trossens have endeavoured to practise the most natural viticulture possible. Biodynamic farming lies at the heart of their ethos and everything...

The first of our single vineyard offerings, the Ürziger Würzgarten is an amphitheatre, trapping the sun’s warmth and yielding deliciously exotic and spicy wines. The red slate and volcanic soil make it one of the most striking vineyards along the Mosel. Like the Schiefersteil, Molitor’s white capsule Kabinett reflects a somewhat drier style of Kabinett.

Sweet, rich and piquant on the palate, this is a vibrant and salty wine full of intensity, finesse and purity, quite young and firmly structured, very expressive and long. So salty!

Rudolf is a maverick. He is a passionate eco warrior with a steely twinkle in his eye. Behind the humble exterior is a man driven to show the true essence of his various parcels in what is Riesling’s most prestigious region. Included in his vineyards is a parcel in the Madonna Plateau, a plot with pre-phylloxera vines which yields Riesling with exceptional concentration.
These are truly unique wines, with unparalleled balance, energy, density and a personality all of their own. After many years searching for a winery from the Mosel, we are very proud to now represent the Trossen family in the UK.
