Story

“Under Napoleon, the Mosel valley was part of the French Empire. Tradition has it that his wife, Empress Josephine, was served Riesling on a trip to Trier and was thrilled by the exotic fragrance and the elegant, fruity style of these wines. From that time on, regular consignments went to the imperial court in Paris.”
