Heading north from Ehnen to Wormeldange, the terroir you can see alongside the road is Wousselt. The vines closest to the village at the bottom of the slope are planted on Luxembourg’s oldest terraces. The Riesling grapes mainly grown here benefit considerably from this unique setting.
Elderly villagers can remember the joining together of the vineyard plots in 1980 and they think back to this famous Machtum terroir with nostalgia. However, forty years on, the vines have once again taken possession of the subsoil and are producing exquisite wines, in particular, Pinot Gris.
Overlooking the village of Wintrange and the Remerschen lakes, the beautiful rounded slope of the Felsberg is not a typical terroir for the Southern Moselle. Its chalky subsoil in fact proves to be a magnificent soil for Riesling… but not just that!
Palmberg is without doubt one of the best terroirs in the country. Underneath the dolomite cliff, which stores up heat during the daytime to then release it at night, the Rieslings here take on a personality which sets them apart from all others.
