Since July 2015, Ulrich Fuchs has served as the sole proprietor at the tradition-rich Weingut Leo Fuchs. This represented the fulfillment of a long-held dream by father Bruno and mother Brunhilde, who feared that the family calling for winegrowing (dating back to 1624) might be broken. At risk was a tradition of enjoyment and quality, passion and a love of wine. Ulrich and Bruno Fuchs are proud to offer visitors a view into the cellar and to customize wine tastings to the specific tastes of their guests, to the classic minimalist accompaniment of bread and water.
The wines are clear and linear: bright, aromatic and balanced. With a fine slate minerality and distinctive fruit aromas, such as in the "Vom grauen Schiefer" Riesling. Or "Sinfonie," a soft, creamy cuvée from premium Pinot Blanc grapes. Beyond Riesling, which comprises 76 percent of the family's holdings, in recent years the family has also increasingly cultivated white Pinot varieties, including Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc — atypical for the Mosel, but entirely in character for Weingut Leo Fuchs.
