Wines and crémants

The Luxembourg Moselle – Between epicure and savoir-faire, a unique microcosm for unique wines.

Wine Country Luxembourg

Luxembourgish wines

It is no coincidence that the valley of the Moselle is one of Luxembourg’s major tourist attractions. The mild climate and the spectacular beauty of the hilly vineyards at whose feet the Moselle ambles, gives the region its quite unique character. Moreover the Moselle valley fulfills all the right conditions allowing vintners to grow excellent wines which are appreciated far beyond the borders of our tiny country.

Nine different grape varieties are grown: Riesling, Pinot noir, Pinot blanc, Pinot gris, Gewürztraminer, Auxerrois, Rivaner, Elbling and Chardonnay.

While the limestone soils of the area around Grevenmacher make for fine and vivacious wines, the keuper and marl soils around Remich give the wines a more opulent character. Furthermore, Luxembourg’s winegrowers have in the last decades acquired an impressive mastery in the manufacture of sparkling wines and crémants.

Much to the delight of winemakers who love sharing the fruit of their labour, wine tastings -whether in private or in business circlesare increasingly popular. For a number of years now the “Wine tasting with friends” initiative gives individuals the opportunity of visiting wineries.
