Three amazing facts about the famous Staffelter Hof winery in Germany
Staffelter Hof wines are made by Jan Mathias Klein in the famous Mosel Valley of Germany. Here are some interesting facts about them!
FACT 1: Did you know the Staffelter Hof is not just one of the oldest surviving wineries...but actually one of the oldest registered companies in the world still in operation?? Wine has been made at this location by monks under the same name since 862AD... that's pretty old!
Fact 2: There is a distinct use of wolves in the visuals of Staffelter Hof labels. This stems from the legend that a wolf killed a donkey working alongside the wine-harvesting monks on the steep slopes of the Mosel valley. The monks caught the wolf and forced the wolf to do the labour of their now-deceased donkey.
Fact 3: Staffelter Hof wines taste AWESOME! Little Bastard and Kiss Kiss Maddies Lips are strong favourites vintage to vintage! These are Mosel wines like no other.... and that's why Little Bastard is called as such, as totally unfitting to the region in style.
