Staffelter Hof is a small farm based in Kröv, a lively and romantic little town located at one of the most beautiful bends of the Mosel river. Kröv was settled by the Celts, then the Romans who introduced and cultivated wine in the area. Most likely one of the oldest wineries in the world, Staffelter Hof dates far back to AD 862, when King Lothar II great-grandson of Carl the Great donated the winery to the monastery of Stavelot (hence the name “Staffelter”) a small town nowadays situated in Belgium, 130 km away from the Mosel river. In 1805 the last “manager”, the family’s ancestor Peter Schneiders, bought the winery back from Napoleon, and since then this winery has been family run and concentrating all their effort into producing the world-renowned “Mosel Rieslings”. The surname 'Klein' has been associated with the winery for over 100 years; Killian Klein married the granddaughter and heir of Peter Schneiders. 1500 m2 of 100 % organically farmed steep slope vineyards, with a breathtaking view over the Mosel valley. A mineral and mouth-watering white wine, with pear and pineapple aromas, made from the grape variety Riesling with 10,5% alcohol on average. Dating far back to AD 862, Staffelter Hof is one of the oldest family-owned wineries in the world. With an encyclopedic knowledge of wine culture and local history, a glass of wine with Gerd Klein is an experience not to be missed.
