Moritz Kissinger makes highly sought-after natural wines in Rheinhessen, Germany. His approach and wines taste very terroir-driven (cool climate with soils of limestone and clay) and the results are praised for their vibrancy, elegance and precision. This and his commitment to sustainable farming practices make him one of the leading natural winemakers in Germany, with high demand and not large supply. We LOVE his wines!
Kissinger's vineyards are located in the small town of Uelversheim and cover an area of approximately 8 hectares - all cultivated using holistic farming methods with a focus on sustainability and soil health.
The vineyards are planted with a variety of grape varieties, including Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau, Riesling, and Pinot Noir.
The soils are primarily limestone and clay, which contribute to the unique flavor profiles of the wines. The grapes are also influenced by the region's cool climate, which allows for a longer growing season and results in wines with high acidity and bright fruit flavors.
