From the 12th century to the 19th century, Abbey Himmerod had been practicing sustained viticulture. During the existence of the monastery numerous lease agreements for the most famous vineyard location at the Mittelmosel had been signed. The wines for the new range 'Edition Abtei Himmerod' had been chosen by the monks of the monastery. For them it was really important to keep the typical minerals of the soil and the character of the wine varieties in order to highlight the unique area of the Mosel.
Riesling is a light-skinned, aromatic grape of German origin which is probably the world's finest white wine grape variety. Riesling's spiritual home is unquestionably the regions that trace the middle Rhine and the lower Mosel, two of Europe's great wine rivers. Here we find the key wine regions of Germany, most famously Mosel, Rheinhessen, Rheingau and Pfalz. Riesling vines cover the steep, slate-rich hillsides above these famous rivers, and are used to make crisp, refreshing wines with pronounced acidity.
