Selbach Oster aims for a typical modern Mosel style, reflecting the minerality of the soil, creating elegance and finesse of the Riesling fruit in clear, crisp, low-alcohol, yet full-flavoured handcrafted wines.

Selbach Oster is one of the top 10 wineries in Mosel. Consistent dedication and commitment to centuries-old Mosel winemaking traditions, this is one of the oldest winemaking regions in the country and probably of the world. The estate is managed by Johannes and Barbara Selbach with the increasing involvement of the next generation of family members Sebastian and Hannah Selbach. The Selbach family's heritage in the wine business dates back to 1660.

24 ha of own vineyards are positioned on the Mosel “golden mile” of vineyards. These vine growing terroirs are worldwide recognized for their unique characteristics. It is important to mention a couple of names:  Zeltinger Himmelreich, Zeltinger Schlossberg, Zeltinger Sonnenuhr, Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Domprobst. Mainly ungrafted vines growing on porous slates, weathered Devonian, from the glacial era. More than 50% of the vineyards are still planted with very old vines, yielding very concentrated fruit from small berries. Grapes grown are 98% Riesling and 2% Pinot Blanc. Vineyard slopes reach a 60% angle in areas, making the use of machinery on the vineyards impossible. All is done by hand.

Johannes continues the use of traditional oak foudres in the cellar. Vinification is carried out in a combination of foudres and stainless steel with minimal intervention and no fining using predominantly indigenous wild yeasts. 

Riesling is the king of grape in Mosel. Medium-bodied wines with incredibly elegant aromatics, structure, longevity, and low alcohol content. A fine Riesling effortlessly fares well in the cellar up to and over 18 years and only improving in complexity. It goes without saying that these kinds of Rieslings are food wines and is considered to the best paired with Asian style food.
