Vinification Details
From the 12th century until the 19th century the Abbey Himmerod had been practiced viticulture. During the existence of the monastery numerous lease agreements for the most famous vineyard location at the Mittelmosel had been signed. The wines for the new range "Edition Abtei Himmerod" had been chosen by the monks of the monastery. For them it was really important to keep the typical minerals of the soil and the character of the wine varieties in order to highlight the unique area of the Mosel.

Favourite wine

This is on our regular order as its simply the best. It is sweet but not as sweet as Moscato. Its very smooth and goes down a treat.

Far too sweet

I usually love Riesling, and I prefer slightly sweeter wines to really dry, but this one was like a dessert wine and didnt go with savoury food, way way too sweet, so wont be buying again!

just the right balance

Never tasted a wine quite like this. The balance of sweet and tart is spectacular. Will buy again for sure

Delicious Riesling

I have had trouble finding a Riesling that isnt too sweet in the UK but this is perfect. The right amount of balanced sweetness and absolutely delicious.

Nice medium sweet wine

We do enjoy this sweet wine. It's not too sweet, and we've had it with both a strawberry desert and a stir fry and it's worked. Also easy to drink a glass or two with ice, on a hot summer evening in the garden.
