Willi Schaefer

Domain: Willi Schaefer

This week, we’re taking you to the Mosel in Germany, to one of the region’s flagship producers, Willi Shaefer. This small family domain of only four hectares is located in the fine terroir of Graach, with remarkably well-located in the area (Himmelreich and Domprobst) as well as Welhen (Sonnenuhr), on slate slopes that plunge into the Mosel, where Riesling reaches its zenith. The sole variety cultivated is in fact Riesling, and thanks to respectful viticulture – with much focus on the balance of the soils - and precise vinifications, their wines display sublime purity of fruit and an ethereal complexity. Be warned: these rare cuvées – wines that have been known to “make adult men cry”, according to Danish blogger René Langdahl – are at once unmissable and hard to come by.

The Willi Schaefer domaine only comprises four hectares, but its small output is making a reputation for itself. Located in the village of Graach in the Moselle region, it is now famous for producing the most delicate and mineral white wines in Germany. Willi and his son Christoph owe the credit for this success to their Himmelreich and Domprobst terroirs, and their unstinting work: manual labour, rigorous selection during harvesting, and close attention to the various vinification and ageing processes.
