In Geisenheim, we aspiring viticulture engineers learned that tradition belongs in and not on the bottle. Some of our wines are allowed to have unconventional names. Nevertheless, like our ancestors, we live to the rhythm of the vines and are allowed to produce something that may accompany the great moments of people: birthdays, weddings ... It is very simple: "Let wine make the heart of man happy" (Psalm 104:15).

Nick Köwerich only cultivates Riesling in his vineyards around Leiwen. The wine-growing village nestles between Trier and Bernkastel on a bend in the river, where blue Devonian slate shape the landscape and wine. Vines have been cultivated on the Middle Moselle since ancient times, Riesling since 1465. The Köwerich family has been in the books of the wine-growing village since 1548. Nevertheless, the viticulture engineer says that tradition belongs in and not on the bottle and calls his wines “For fairies and elves” and “For dreamers and heroes”, some grant “Insight N ° 1” and are also available in 0.375 or 025 l -Bottles on the go are called "wines for the young generation" by journalists. As a child he happily threw his school bag in the corner after class and hurried to his father's vineyard: Adventure land instead of hard school desk After graduating from high school, he studied viticulture in Geisenheim. As a young engineer, he went back to the Moselle because he knew that he could produce unique and style-defining wines on the Moselle. Gault & Millau Weinguide, Falstaff, Vinum, Mundus vini, Falstaff, Feinschmecker have been recommending the winery for many years. Magazines and newspapers recommend his wines: Brigitte, Stern, Welt, Freund, Living at home, Gala ...
