Organic producer

A small family owned winery in Pünderich situated in the middle part of the Mosel. Riesling is the most important variety here, as the slate slopes give the perfect growing conditions. The best vineyards are located in the “Erste Lage” (first site) and “Pündericher Marienburg”, a steep slope just across the river from the village Pünderich. As the soil varies between blue, grey and red slate, many wines of different styles and unique characters are grown here. Organic and bio-dynamic winegrowing has always been one of Clemens Busch’s main beliefs to achieve fine quality wine and sustainability. The family have become convinced by the effects of bio-dynamic preparation in order to improve the life in the soil and vineyard, and therefore the health of the vines. To express the vineyard’s character in the wine, the fermentation is influenced as little as possible, often these fermentations with natural yeast lasts 8 months or longer. Dry wines including the “Großes Gewächs” (Grand Cru), off-dry wines from the best vineyards and of course the noble sweet wines are part of Clemens Busch’s collection.
