The Mönchhof, formerly in the possession of the Cisterian abbey Himmerod, is one of the oldest Wine 'Estates at the Mosel. Pope Alexander III already confirmed the first Wine Estate possession of the abbey in the year 1177 in Uerzig. The monks of Himmerod built the wine-cellar at that time and in 1509 the estate you can admire today. In 1804, after the secularization by Napoleon, our family could acquire the Wine Estate in Paris. Robert Eymael leads since 1994 the Wine Estate. Joke and humor paired with a quality-conscious individualism, describe his philosophy, which reflects itself in the inimitable style of its Riesling wines. – Description from iskicm

  • With harvest truly getting underway in northern California, up to now it's mostly been early whites and grapes for roses and sparkling wines, masses of enotourists are descending on the northern counties to enjoy them in their glory. While many of us think of wine country as a tourist destination, the truth of the matter is that it is an agricul... Read More

  • Joh. Jos. Christoffel Erben Riesling 2007

    Snoothrank:

    This bottle was bubbly for some reason, so may not be all that representative of what the wine should be. Nonetheless, a really nice wine. Nose of lime, lime peel, candy and maybe some tropical fruit. Palate of lime, lime peel, lime leaves and some tropical sweetness, rich and intense. Sharp, dry, minerally acid. Read More

Can anyone give me some recommendations for a mild wine to try to kind of get my toes wet in this whole wine thing? Thanks i... Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Very mineral on the nose with just a hint of green herb backing up a succulent melange of green apple. pear and apricot fruits. Rich and bright in the mouth yet finely balanced with excellent cut across the mid-palate. The apricot and green herb tinged fruit has a touch of sweet yellow tomato on the backend that leads to a very long quartzy fin... Read More

    Sweet and very mineral. Oily and viscous with great petrol flavors. Well aged, yet still sprightly acidic with a bit of a spritz too. Great. Read More
