The Clemens Busch winery is a family-owned winery in Pünderich, at the midpoint of the Mosel River. Riesling is essential here, as the slate slopes provide perfect conditions. Their best single-site vineyards are in the VDP GROSSE LAGE “Pündericher Marienburg,” a steep slope just across the river from Pünderich village. As the soil here varies between blue, grey, and red slate, many wines of different styles and unique characters are produced. Organic winemaking has always been one of Clemens Busch’s principles for achieving the highest quality and sustainability. The family has worked organically since 1984. Their fermentations are influenced as little as possible to express the vineyard’s character in the wine. Often, these fermentations, using only the vineyards’ native yeast, last 8 months or longer.
Dry wines, including their Grosses Gewächs (Grand Cru), off-dry wines from their best vineyards, and, of course, the noble sweet botrytis wines right up to their Trockenbeerenauslese are part of the Clemens Busch wine selection.
