The Winery: Sybille Kuntz

Sybille Kuntz’s estate is one of the few in Europe to boast a female chairwoman and winemaker—a feat even more impressive considering Germany’s overwhelmingly male winemaking community. Leading one of the longest lived female-helmed wineries in Europe, Sybille is in her third decade of production. Her estate is nestled among the steep slopes of Germany’s Mosel region, an area considered by many to produce the world’s highest quality Rieslings. In fact, the site of her vines was first recognized as a highly rated vineyard site in 1804, under Napoleon’s classification system. Kuntz farms her 45-80-year-old vines biodynamically, a method of agriculture that goes beyond organics to promote a self-sustaining ecosystem within the vineyard, focusing on making exceptional dry Rieslings. ”Trocken,” in German, means “dry”.

The basis for the dense and mineral SYBILLE KUNTZ Mosel-Riesling wines are mainly own rooted vines in the best and steepest vineyard sites. The largest part of the vineyard properties is situated in the single vineyard site Niederberg-Helden in Lieser, a steep vineyard site, already classified as a grand cru by Napoleon’s terroir experts in 1804, when the Mosel was under French rule.

The Estate has been acting organic since 1990 and since 2013 Eco certified. Simultaneously the transition began to a complete biodynamic cultivation of the vineyards. This was certified by Demeter in 2016 – the highest level of natural viticulture for grapes and vineyards.
