The von Schleinitz estate is one of the leading estates in the lower Mosel
valley producing very fruit-focused wines with strong minerality due to
the weathered slate soil and the low average yield on the steep terraces
of the narrow valley.
All wines are raised in stainless steel preserving the fresh Riesling fruit and allowing the wines to reflect the unique minerality of the slate soils in the reds as well as whites.
