The Selbach family has a long viticultural history dating back to 1661. Today, this leading Mosel estate is run by Johannes and Barbara Selbach with the help of their children. Occupying 25 hectares of vines in Zeltingen and Graach, the Selbach's holdings are some of the most desirable steep slopes in Mosel. Many of these sites are un-grafted - some of the vines are over 100 years old!
Selbach-Oster produces traditional and classic Rieslings. They don't make wines according to the whims of fashion, and their winemaking is anything but by-the-numbers. These wines do not seek to seduce with short term exotic aromas, but rather beguile the senses with monolithic structure and exquisite expression of their terroir. Delicious and subtle, these wines "typically appear substantially better after a few years of cellaring", during which time they gain profound complexity.
