Moselland is a grower’s cooperative famous for producing premium quality wines at competitive prices. What is a grower’s cooperative, exactly? A cooperative is a group of wine grape growers who share their resources to produce, bottle, and market wine. Making wine independently requires investment and time that is practically beyond the means of most farmers. Cooperatives play an essential role by providing growers with access to economies of scale, a vocal role in production, and a fair share of profits.
This approach also provides a tremendous benefit to consumers. Well-run cooperatives, like Moselland, are a prime source of excellent wine at lower prices. Moselland was formed in 1968 when several small cooperatives merged. It is now based in the famous twin wine towns of Berkastel-Kues, in the heart of the Mosel River Valley. Moselland produces wines from all over Germany in a range of styles, and Riesling in their specialty.
Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining its identity. A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, this versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Somm Secret—Given how difficult it is to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling from the label, here are some clues to find the dry ones. First, look for the world “trocken.” (“Halbtrocken” or “feinherb” mean off-dry.) Also a higher abv usually indicates a drier Riesling.
