Philosophy

The wine estate of Markus Molitor is located amidst the Wehlener Klosterberg vineyards in the middle Mosel region. Along the river on more than fifteen spectacular steep-sloped sites (partially planted with very old vines) Riesling, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Noir grapes are grown. Uncompromising cultivation by hand and absolute respect for nature are hallmarks of Markus Molitor. Due to a late harvest and strict selection of the individual grapes extremely low yields are achieved. A very important part of his philosophy is naturalness, terroir, complexity and ageing potential. All wines are fermented spontaneously in the traditional manner in large wooden barrels without the use of stabilizing measures or additives. Markus Molitor wines incorporate the almost infinite range of flavors and styles found in Mosel Rieslings – a unique balance of fruit and minerality, sweetness and acidity.
