Wichtiger Baustein unserer Qualität ist die späte Ernte ausschließlich per Hand. So selektieren wir und stellen sicher, das nur physiologisch reife und gesunde Trauben in der Keller kommen.

A GIFT FROM NATURE: OUR VINEYARDS

The character of the wines is shaped by the distinctive, steep-slope Grand Cru vineyards. Richard Böcking has 15 acres under cultivation in vineyards that lie in Traben-Trarbach in the famed Middle Mosel River valley, one of the finest Riesling growing regions in the world. These vineyards are shown on the official Prussian vineyard map published at the end of the 19th Century, and their reputation as especially worthy slopes can be traced to the beginning of the 17th century.


The Grand Cru Böcking Vineyards:

Trarbacher Schlossberg, Burgberg, Ungsberg and Hühnerberg

In these vineyards grow our “Alte Reben” (old vines) vines from 40-90 years old, along with more recent plantings. Among our Grand Cru vineyards, the Ungsberg is especially dear to our hearts, as it is here that our long family history is anchored. Evidence shows this vineyard was cultivated by the Romans. It was also an early area for cultivating healing herbs and salves. Over 25 different herbal varieties have been identified on its slopes.

    

The classic village vineyard:  

 

Trarbacher Taubenhaus    
 

Predominately from this vineyard comes our popular “Böcking Riesling.” This vineyard is a prominent member of the Trarbach community, and was an early example of how vintners came together and rebuilt old steep slopes into more efficient tracts.
