The winery was founded by Carl Graff in 1860. It was purchased by Valckenberg in 1969, who maintains the commitment to producing sweet style Rieslings from famous Mosel vineyard sites, such as Urziger Wurzgarten and Graacher Himmelreich. Tilman Quiens, winemaker for Liebfrauenstift, oversees the production of Graff Rieslings, ensuring they embody the typical racy sweetness the Mosel region is known for. The Mosel Saar Ruwer region with its steep south facing slopes and the stony slate soil provides the perfect microclimate for the Riesling grape. The most internationally known of all the regions, the Mosel is synonymous with sweet style Rieslings. Comprised of blue (also called grey) and red slate, the vineyards in the Mosel are some of the steepest in the world. Single vine trellising and hand harvesting are the only options in many of the vineyards sites.
Fragrant bouquet and flavors reminiscent of apples and peaches, and finishes with a distinctive mineral tone and a crisp, mouthwatering finish.
