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.
My Notes:

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.
