The Story: Since 1999, Stefan Steinmetz has represented the fifth generation of his family to tend vines in the Mosel, and a credit to his lineage his wines truly are. Based in Brauneberger, he and his wife Sammie work their exceedingly steep (up to 80¬∞) vineyards tirelessly, about 12 hectares in total. Their specialty, of course, is Riesling, Queen of Grapes as they call it. Their renditions are remarkably focused and pure, reflections of their varied and idyllic vineyard sites..¬†
