馬庫斯 梅麗特酒莊 MARKUS MOLITOR
馬庫斯 梅麗特酒莊成立於1899年，位於德國Mosel地區，1984年Markus在20歲時接管了家裡的釀酒廠，為Markus Molitor第八代酒莊主人。之後便積極購置葡萄園，如今的成果已是當初1984年他接手後的兩倍之上。他接受訓練並清楚了解各個葡萄園的生長環境，是為了確保能孕育出極高品質的葡萄。酒莊位於摩塞河谷中游，最值得一提的為板岩土壤特點，其中有名的區域葡萄園包括Zeltinger Sonnenuhr、Zeltinger Schloβberg、Wehlener Sonnenuhr與Graacher Domprobst，幾乎都有種植Riesling。大多數葡萄園呈現80度的斜度以梯狀排列，都由手工摘採，品質嚴謹。旗下最好的葡萄園是Zeltinger村莊的Sonnenuhr葡萄園。Markus Molitor葡萄園的葡萄藤主要多為60歲以上的老藤，甚至有的已超過了100歲。更由於Markus親力親為在栽種及親自品嚐每個年份中每個葡萄園裡的葡萄及參與每瓶酒釀製過程的堅持，以致使得酒能到達更醇美卻不失明亮的風味。
In 1984, at the age of just 20, Markus Molitor assumed responsibility for the parental wine estate, then just 7 ½ acres. Despite his youth, his vision was very clearly defined and ambitious: to help restore the wines of the Moselle valley to their former glory, with unmistakeable Riesling wines true to their individual vineyard identity (terroir) and of extreme longevity. Precise quality of work both in vineyard and cellar - without any compromises - together with absolute respect for the natural products grape and wine are his guidelines. Each vineyard, each vintage should express itself in taste. He wants his wines to have structure and depth of taste as well as to inspire with the freshness and brilliance typical of the Moselle. The Molitor family have been making wine at their estate for 8 generations. The home of the winery lies situated above the Moselle in the middle of the Wehlener Klosterberg vineyard, with a view over to the vineyards of Zeltingen.The Markus Molitor winery currently holds 38 hectares of vineyard, of which 4,5 hectares are in the Saar region, making it the largest winery on the Middle Mosel.
98% of our vineyards are officially classified as steep slopes. Indeed, much more than half the vineyards can be described as being extremely steep, with slopes of more than 60%. Careful work, and almost exclusively manual work is indicated all year round under these conditions, not just at harvest time.
