Profile

Andreas Adam is a younger top name in the Mosel.
As the Robert Parker's Wine Advocate web magazine stated,
“Andreas Adam is a younger top name in the Mosel.”
Andreas started the wine business in 2000. With using his grandfather’s old wine cellar and inherited talent, Andreas restarted winemaking with using small parcel of 1000qm. His sister Barbara joining wine making in 2013 has made A.J. Adam’s passion and willingness doubled.
A.J. Adam’s reputation has been growing in the industry. Always focus on quality rather quantity. It is rare to see a top producer with such very limited production. Andreas and Barbara minimize adjustments and treatments but handle with great care to make wines express their potential.

A.J. Adam best wines

The best wine from our winery for us is Hofberg trocken. A dry “Lagenwein” from the site Hofberg with full south exposition in the steep slopes with grey davonia slate and quarzite. The vines are up to 60 years. After a preselection in this parcel we let the grapes ripe again to get best yield with high aroma for this wine. We try to work as similar as our forefathers did in the 20s. Small yields (in 2014 40 hl by hector) of late-harvested Riesling grapes are gently handled and pressed after a few hours of skin contact. The fresh juice is fermented by wild yeasts and aged in old wooden barrels of 1000 litre sizes. Our wines get no fining and are only filtered once before bottling.

Mosel

Home of A.J. Adam
Germany is one of the great wine producing countries and has a long history of winemaking. German white wines from the best sites made by the most reputable producers are no doubt some of the greatest in the world.Sweet wine making is a German specialty. The balance between sugar and acid is the key for excellence. There are various styles. Kabinet, Spatlese, and Auslese styles are made by interrupting fermentation to leave residual sugar.Mosel is the most famous of Germany's wine region and the third largest in terms of production (5,300ha). The region lies around the Mosel river from its confluence with the Rhine river near Koblenz to Germany's border with Luxembourg and France.
Steep slopes in Mosel are well-known and very effective in optimizing the vines’ exposure to sun. It encourages to ripen grapes. The dark slate soil can retain heat, too. Due to steep vineyard sites, it is not possible to use machineries so that manual work with great care is required in the vineyards.

from A.J. Adam

We really love our wine region with its steep slopes and the loops of the Mosel. Even in spring when flowering starts and everything begins to turn green it is a really great place to be. You can do hiking tours through the vineyards or go by bike. There are plenty restaurants with great views. If you like being on the water you can also take the boat for a nice tour through Mosel region.

Riesling

Riesling is the most famous German grape variety and the most widely planted in the country (account for 22% of vineyards). It is believed as the world's finest white-wine grape variety, especially botrytized Rieslings.
“Riesling is one of the most valuable wine variety in the world. We cultivate Riesling in Germany since the Middle Ages. Riesling is not winter frost susceptible so that it can grow very good in cooler regions. Riesling has a very changeable variety in taste. You can produce the whole palate from dry to fruity to really sweet wines like Trockenbeerenauslese or Eiswein. A well-produced Riesling can age decades and still taste fresh. In combination with soil, slope direction, cultivation and maturation you can create different Riesling styles even in the same categories.” (A.J. Adam)

Above 91 by Parker Point and Wine Spectator.

2014 Hofberg Kabinett (Abv 8.5%, 750 ml):Parker Point: 92
The top wine in the German Riesling review in the July 2016 Wine Spectator – Score: 92
“Sourced in the back of the side valley from healthy grapes with 79° Oechsle, the steel-fermented 2014 Hofberg Kabinett shows a very clear and pure, smoky-flavored bouquet with fine and ripe, yet lovely piquant Riesling flavors along with lemon aromas. Light, piquant and sweet on the palate, this is an extraordinary Kabinett because it is not just light, fruity and piquant, but also very complex and filled with tension. This is a picture-book Mosel Kabinett and it drinks pretty dry. It's a Must Buy. “ (Wine Advocate)

2014 Hofberg trocken (Abv 12.0%, 750 ml):Parker Point: 91+
“Adam's 2014 Hofberg offers a clear, deep and elegant, intense and smoky bouquet with concentrated aromas of ripe stone fruits. Round, intense and juicy on the palate, this is a rich and full-bodied Riesling with power, concentration and a long finish with a nice salinity in the end. Complex. This wine will benefit from further bottle aging of four or more years and can age for more than 20 years. It has 12% alcohol. “(Wine Advocate)

   Getting to know about AJ Adam

The most important thing is to have passion and willingness to produce good wine. You have to take care for the vineyards. Do quality work in all processes from pruning to harvest. It is important to do soil cultivation and canopy management and take care of healthy vines so that we get high quality grapes in harvest. In the cellar we add no fining or yeast to the wines. We let them ferment natural (spontaneous fermentation only).

We really love our wine region with its steep slopes and the loops of the Mosel. Even in spring when flowering starts and everything begins to turn green it is a really great place to be. You can do hiking tours through the vineyards or go by bike. There are plenty restaurants with great views. If you like being on the water you can also take the boat for a nice tour through Mosel region.

We would recommend our friends to visit Bernkastel-Kues or Trier, lovely little cities on Mosel or visit some of the villages with nice views and restaurants/wineries. We also do winetastings for customers and friends and show them our vineyards in Dhron and Piesport. A good place to stay is Ferienwohnung Eifel in Trittenheim or Hotel/Restaurant Schanz in Piesport where you also can have very good dinner.

The best wine from our winery for us is Hofberg trocken. A dry “Lagenwein” from the site Hofberg with full south exposition in the steep slopes with grey davonia slate and quarzite. The vines are up to 60 years. After a preselection in this parcel we let the grapes ripe again to get best yield with high aroma for this wine. We try to work as similar as our forefathers did in the 20s. Small yields (in 2014 40 hl by hector) of late-harvested Riesling grapes are gently handled and pressed after a few hours of skin contact. The fresh juice is fermented by wild yeasts and aged in old wooden barrels of 1000 litre sizes. Our wines get no fining and are only filtered once before bottling. Tasting notes A lot of color and commandingly serious walnut and slate fragrance; the palate is proud, monumental and almost solemn, Riesling as serious business, Riesling in its fundamental mineral being. Picked only at 94 °Oe in late October for elegance and drinkability, the wine has inscrutable depth. The grapes offer dark fruity notes. Blackberry and currant meet long- lasting minerality. Our Hofberg presents itself powerful, but not too alcoholic and shows how beautiful dry wines from the Mosel can be.

We enjoy the whole process of wine making and what´s around it because everything belongs together. Do work in the vineyards, in the cellar, in the office and marketing. It is important to take every single step serious to get a good product for happy customers at the end.

Climate variability is the most challenging thing for us. If the weather turns bad you have to be so careful and in time to manage everything right. There can be diseases for the vines and grapes you have to handle with to get a good yield in harvest.

You don´t need food in special for our wine. Kabinett is for example also a good aperitif before you have food. We recommend our dry (Hofberg trocken) and off-dry (like im Pfarrgarten) for spicy food or courses with fish, seafood or white meat. The dessert wines (Auslese 2011) match very well with cheese or light sweet and fruity desserts.

Riesling is one of the most valuable wine variety in the world. We cultivate Riesling in Germany since the Middle Ages. Riesling is not winter frost susceptible so that it can grow very good in cooler regions. Riesling has a very changeable variety in taste. You can produce the whole palate from dry to fruity to really sweet wines like Trockenbeerenauslese or Eiswein. A well-produced Riesling can age decades and still taste fresh. In combination with soil, slope direction, cultivation and maturation you can create different Riesling styles even in the same categories.

Our wines are available in: Asia (Japan, Singapore, China, Taiwan, Thailand) Australia (Sydney, New Zealand) North America (USA, Canada) Europe (Germany, France, Spain, Netherlands, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, UK, Czech Republic)

For the future we want to create a sparkling wine and maybe an Icewine (if weather allows it). For the future we hope that we get good vintages to produce our wines the way we do today and stay with our quality.

The look of the label was found in an old book with several labels in it. We created it a bit in a new and more modern style and changed the color.

2012 was one of the most memorable vintages for us. We got very good crop, lower amount than is 2011, but very high in quality. Cool and dry spring for a slow budding, degrees around 20°C at the beginning of summer, hot late summer and golden October.  We had perfect weather conditions in harvest and harvested good grapes for dry, off-dry and botrytis for dessert wines. We got grapes with high aroma and minerality and a striking acidity.

Andreas started in 2000 with 1000 qm, now in 2016 we grew up to 5 ha. This is an ideal size for the two of us (sister Barbara joined the winery in 2013). We will stay with this size for the moment because we feel comfortable to manage everything right and in a quality-conscious way.
