Andreas Adam is one of the top producers in the Middle Mosel. Many winemakers left this area during the 70’s and 80’s to move to the cities, leaving vineyards unattended. Many people would consider his work (which began in 2000) as the key reason that Dhron has been restored to its former status as one of the great regions of the Mosel. While all his sites are situated in the Mosel River Valley, the Piesport wines come from the Goldtropfen site, while the Dhron plantings come from the Hofberg site, named for the Dhron River, a tributary of the Mosel.
The Spatlese Riesling is a wine picked as the first part of the late harvest. This is the lightest of the late harvest wines in both sugar and body weight. The vines are harvested all from the Hofberg site ranging from 30 to 65 years old.
