Weingut Albert Gessinger
Germany - Mosel

The Gessinger family has been making wine in the Mosel since 1680. Current owner & winemaker is Albert Gessinger, with involvement from his daughter, Sarah. The family is originally from Trentino-Alto Adige.

Their vineyards are located in the famous Zeltinger region, the longest continuous south-facing slope on the Mosel. They have three vineyards: Zeltinger Sonnenuhr, Zeltinger Schlossberg and Zeltinger Himmelreich regions. The Zeltinger Sonnenuhr vineyard is further divided into two subunits – “Caldo Infernale” (hot cauldron) and Josefsberg (‘Joseph’s hill’ in old vines).

The Estate consists of 8 acres (3.2 hectares), planted to 80% Riesling, 15% Spatburgunder (Pinot Noir), and 5% Dornfelder (new red wine clone developed in 1956). All of their white wines are 100% Riesling planted on Devon Slate.

Gessinger’s production is quite small, at less than 2,000 cases. Weingut Gessinger joined the Bernkasteler Ring in 1899.
