Wine is my hobby. Fine wine tasting notes and experiences.



Based in Mosel Saar Ruwer, Germany.

Family business in Osann-Monzel on the Moselle, which has been producing wine since 1773. Today, Bernhard Reef is the master winemaker responsible for winemaking, while his son Matthias Reef focusses on sales. The winery also offers vine sponsorships, for example.

As a non-VDP member, the Reef winery builds on its own quality pyramid: At the lowest level are the "Grundstein" (foundation stone) wines, then come the "Selektion" (selection) wines and finally, at the top, the wines labelled "Fass Nummer 13" (barrel number 13).

As the name suggests, the grapes for the "Selektion" were selected more strictly during the harvest and attention was paid to reducing the yield. The idea of hand-picking is pursued even more stringently for the estate's top wines. The wines are then matured in a barrel numbered 13, in keeping with the estate's tradition. These are mainly wines from Devon slate. According to the winery, there is only a wine from barrel 13 in successful years.
