Founded in 1850, Weingut Bastgen is located on the tiny hamlet of Monzel, not far from Bernkastel-Keus. The current owners are husband-and-wife team Armin Vogel and Mona Bastgen, who began working in the winery in 1993.
Mona and Armin meticulously tend 16 acres of vines growing in slate soil, 80% of which is Riesling. The vineyards are located in Kesten, known for its impressively steep terrace overlooking the Mosel River, and planted to 50-year old vines. The vines produce very small, ripe berries that are very tasty. The average total production is 3,300 cases. Bastgen is a member of the elite Bernkasteler Ring.
