Weinhaus Gebrüder Steffen, Trittenheim
The winery of the Steffen family in Trittenheim was founded in 1794. Trittenheim is an ancient wine-growing district in the famous Mosel valley. Today the father, Hans Steffen, and his son, Roman Steffen, run the renowned winery, which is famous throughout the world for its outstanding Riesling wines from the steep slate slopes of the Mosel. But it is also well-known for its very good products from other regions, such as this wine from the Nahe region.
In Germany, wine is grown on more than 100.000 hectare, whereby table grapes do not play a role. As Germany is among the most northern and hence climatically coldest growing countries of the world, the grapes develop particularly elegant and manifold aromas. Each vintage shows new discoveries and a unique character. Germany’s best vineyard slopes are situated on steep, sun-kissed slopes of river valleys, as to be found at the Moselle region.
The origins of viticulture in Germany date back to the Romans, who brought the art of viniculture to Central Europe 2.000 years ago. In Germany, the Riesling variety is considered a native plant, which grew originally in the alluvial forests along the Rhine’s river banks. Today Germany’s viticulture is characterized by a young generation of very well educated winemakers, who create international premium wines.
The wine growing region consists of around 4.000 hectare vines, which are situated at the slopes of the Nahe valley and its tributary valleys. The Nahe, the river which has given the wine-growing region its name, has its source in the west of the country and flows into the river Rhein across from Rüdesheim. This region is particularly characterized by its landscape diversity and beauty with a wide range of touristic offers. The variety of local wines is also very diverse. Fruity red wines are mainly made from the varietals Dornfelder, Spätburgunder and Portugieser. The aromatic white wines primarily originate from Riesling, Müller-Thurgau, Silvaner, Weißburgunder or Grauburgunder grapes.
