At the turn of the 20th century, Traben-Trarbach was one of the wealthiest towns in the Mosel. It was the beating heart of the trade in what were largely considered the greatest wines in the world: Mosel Rieslings. Much of the grand architecture of Traben-Trarbach was built during this period – the stunning Jugendstil (“Art Nouveau” in French) Hotel Bellevue is perhaps the most iconic building of the village.
Most importantly, however, the dawn of the 20th century was the height of fame for the vineyards that Weiser-Künstler now farm. This is a place, literally, where roots run very deep; you can taste that profundity in the wines. Konstantin Weiser and Alexandra Künstler are as soulful as the vineyards they farm; this is a micro-estate
with only around 4 hectares total. They very literally do everything by hand, working the sites both organically and bio-dynamically. They are in the vines daily and it’s immediately obvious that this is where they’re most comfortable – it’s obvious that they love their vineyards.
