Dear wine lover

Welcome to the website of the Riesling wine-growing estate Karl Erbes. My name is Stefan Erbes and together with my father Karl I manage this family-run business which was established in 1967.

Our estate covers five hectares (12 acres) of vineyards in the prime locations of Ürziger Würzgarten and Erdener Treppchen. All our vines are non-grafted Riesling vines, the oldest ones are between 70 and 80 years old. All our wines are matured and bottled at our estate in Ürzig.

The unusually mild climate in the famous Mosel region combined with a unique slated soil in Ürzig makes for the best conditions to grow Riesling vines. Our vines grow on extremely steep slopes with ideal angles to catch the sunlight throughout the year. This means that all work has to be done manually, including the harvest. Our motto is "quality over quantity", we deliberately reduce the amount of grapes on the vine and specially select them during harvest to reflect the "Terroir" for each individual wine. Attuned to tradition, our wines are matured in oak barrels.

We are proud of our wines and happy to see them appreciated in Germany and around the world, with long-standing customers in Japan, Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom and the Netherlands.

We are now offering international wine enthusiasts the possibility to order our wine directly from the estate. Just as in our tasting parlour you will find the complete selection of wines, covering the whole range from dry to intensely sweet Rieslings from the current vintage through to 30+ year old rarities for the connoisseur. Just ask for our price list. Or, for the complete authentic experience, come and visit us.
