The Oddbins Take

Erden is a village on the banks of the Mosel river. Treppchen literally means staircase, and refers to the terrace steps cut into the precipitous slopes of the valley opposite, on which the good people of Erden cultivate some of the finest Riesling grapes to be found anywhere in the World. And the wine they make from it is proper Riesling. Full of exotic floral and fruit aromas, a heady whiff of petroleum and, yes, sweetness, too. This is proper Riesling, the way it should be. Wine for grown ups.

The estate is today run by Dr. Dirk Richter with his son Constantin who is learning the ropes in order to continue the familly traditions.
