For years, Annegret and Gerhard Gartner have created a nearly perfect harmony between their personal and professional lives – something only a few married couples succeed in doing. Not only are they inseparable from one another, but also from their work. It comes as no surprise – nearly everything revolves around food and wine. The wines are uncompromisingly and consistently subject to the highest quality standards. This commitment has earned the estate recognition and respect, and has been confirmed by many prizes and awards by leadinging publications, such as the German gourmet magazine Feinschmecker, the critical wine guide Gault Millau, and the American wine magazine Wine Spectator (including vintner of the year) – to name but a few. Weingut Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt is more than 650 years old and thus, one of the most historical estates in the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region. In 1978, the Günther Reh family acquired the estate from the Reichsgrafen (imperial counts) of Kesselstatt. Today, Annegret Reh-Gartner and her husband Gerhard Gartner carry on this Riesling tradition. In 1999, headquarters moved from Palais Keselstatt in Trier to Schloss Marienlay in the Ruwer Valley. Here, optimal conditions were created for producing Riesling wines that are on a par with the finest wines of the world. No other wine estate in Germany has such an unusually broad spectrum of top vineyards in all three river valleys of the Mosel-Saar-Ruwer region. They are sites that number among the best white wine vineyards of the world. The estate owns 36 hectares (89 acres) of vines, all of which are on steep slopes. All work in the vineyards is exclusively done by hand. The estate’s guiding principle: the quality of the terroir should be reflected in a wine. Read less

The Kesselstatt 2006 Kaseler Nies-chen Riesling Grosses Gewachs represents one of the most concentrated distilled fruit aromas I can ever recall. The somewhat spiritous bitter suggestions are more than compensated for by the sheer intrigue and audacity of such a nose of kirsch prunelle maraschino and smoke. Persistent fruit pit bitterness follows this relatively full-bodied (13% alcohol) Riesling through to a penetrating finish with red berry lemon zest and sheer wet stone mingling with the
