Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The very steep Apotheke vineyard, across the Mosel from the estate house, is Stefan's best site in Trittenheim. 'Apotheke' translates to ‘pharmacy', and its medicinal power is perhaps more than a myth. Stefan Bollig's wines are stylish and crisp with a fine fruity elegance and good mineral content. The fine structure of ripe acidity gives his wines plenty of maturing potential.

Critical Acclaim

"A fleshy kabinett, with intense slate and honey cream flavors, accented by notes of apricot and spice. Rich notes of tropical fruit, including guava and pineapple, fill the finish. Drink now through 2020. "

Learn About Bollig-Lehnert

The family has been producing wine since the 17th Century, but new cellars and a new house have been built on the outskirts of Trittenheim. Stefan Bollig and his wife Jill live in the estate house in Trittenheim with their family, whilst the Weinstube am Domhof (a wine pub) is situated in the old Piesport house. The total holdings of 4 hectares (10 acres) are tended by the family themselves. Their very steep sloped vineyard sites are composed mainly of blue and black decomposing slaty soil.
