    Saar Valley, Mosel

    The Ockfener Bockstein is a beautiful single vineyard hillside made up mostly of devonian slate, with streaks of greywacke running through it. Replete with ripe citrus and tropical fruit, the wine displays beautiful texture and weight that is perfectly balanced by it’s racey acidity.

    Located in the historic center of Wiltingen in the Saar Valley, the Van Volxem winery dates back to Roman times. The vineyards date back to the 3rd century, and the traces of the original villa remain to this day. Gustav van Volxem purchased the property in the wake of the French Revolution, which ended generations of monastic control. Gustav was a true visionary, and recognized the potential of his spectacular vineyard sites. The estate gained international acclaim over the four generations of Van Volxem family stewardship that followed Gustav. In 2000, Roman Niewodniczanski purchased the property and embarked on an ambitious program to revive the prestige of German Riesling, which a century before commanded higher prices than the top estates of Burgundy or Bordeaux.
