Former civil engineer turned Moselle Riesling winemaker in... Luxembourg???

  • When you think of the great European wine countries, Luxembourg isn’t normally the first name that springs to mind. But with a winemaking history that dates back to Roman times and 26 miles of hillside vineyards on the banks of the Moselle river, across from Germany’s most famous wine region, Luxembourg is capable of producing truly world-class wines.

  • Just like the German side of the Mosel, the king of Luxembourg wines is Riesling. It’s a grape that runs in the blood of winemaker Stephan Weber, who grew up in one of the most iconic Riesling towns in Germany, Wiltingen an der Saar.

  • Before becoming a winemaker, Stephan actually studied to become a civil engineer, but the call to his roots was too strong to resist. After honing his craft at renowned wineries in Germany and Austria, he settled down in Luxembourg and now devotes himself to making fine, age-worthy Rieslings. His dream is to one day make a wine that will age so gracefully, it could still be enjoyed by his great-grandchildren in the future.
