About Selbach-Oster and the Selbach family:
The ancestors of the Selbach family have been cultivating Riesling since 1600. The Selbach family originated from the village “Ürzig” and the Oster family comes from the small village of “Zeltingen” on the opposite side of the river. Today, Johannes Selbach and his wife Barbara are running the winery with passion for the wines and in respect of the long tradition.The great-grandfather of Johannes owned a Mosel steamship and shipped his wines in oak barrels down the Mosel and the Rhine to the North Sea ports. These barrels again were made by Matthias Oster, a cooper and the great-grandfather on the paternal side of the family. Therefore, the winery developed in three fields, on one side as a top estate in the region and simultaneously on the other side as a négociant and brokerage firm, making wines from grapes and juice bought from other producers and consolidating the production of smaller producers, offering a broad and comprehensive range of fine German wines.
Join us Monday, January 21th anytime between 5pm and 7 pm for a tasting with Johannes Selbach, owner and winemaker at Germany’s famed Mosel Estate, Selbach-Oster. We will taste 5 of the estate’s tremendous wines as Johannes guides us through the range of both sweet and dry wines.
