The Milz family has been growing wine in Trittenheim since 1520. The Laurentiushof, the original estate and ancestral home, is located in the middle of Trittenheim next to the church. The cellars were partly built in 1680, other parts of the building around 1715. In essence, the house and the estate cellar have been preserved in the old style and are equipped with the most modern facilities of a winery.
The experience of this long time is reflected in the quality of the wines. As a founding member of the VDP, they are also closely rooted in German wine history. Since 2015 years, the Vinothek can be found at the intersection of Olkstraße - Brückenstraße, two minutes away from the original estate and parent house.
The vineyard sites are 90% steep slopes with mostly extreme inclination. This ensures an optimal light yield and heat absorption. The slate is the basis of the soils. It is the heat accumulator of the vines, thus promoting the quality of the grapes and giving the wines their mineral character, the spice in the wine.
The Riesling grape finds its first documented mention for the Mosel Valley in Trittenheim. Weingut Milz is one of the oldest local wineries and the cultivation of the Riesling grape is over 90% in the winery. Typical for the Mosel. But what makes ours special are the old vines. 80% of the vines are 35 years and older. Old vines produce wines rich in substance with a great sustainability and durability. The grape yield is naturally reduced.
The deep rooting leads to an optimal supply, promotes the absorption of minerals into the grapes and thus increases the quality of the wines.
Old vines are the basis for wines full of character with the highest quality standards!
