Rudolf & Rita Trossen

Rita and Rudolf Trossen began biodynamic viticulture in 1978 in Kinheim-Kindel on the Middle Mosel. Absolute pioneering work. Back then they were smiled at in Germany – today they are celebrated worldwide. To this day, the two heart people cultivate two hectares of vineyards in slate steep slopes, mostly planted with very old, ungrafted vines, in a beautiful and enchanting landscape. 

The work in the vineyards is completely manual. Everything is based on a deep understanding of nature's cycles, the vitality of the soil and the relationship of man to the environment. 

In the cellar, the wines are fermented long and slowly and stored in traditional, old barrels (Moselfuder). And since 2010, when the Purus line was born after a group of Danish sommeliers and a passionate Belgian friend asked them to bottle the first wines without added sulphur: no sulphur, no filtration, no additions anymore. Nothing in, nothing out. Today, the Purus wines are the signature wines of the small winery. 100% Riesling grape – nothing else. 

The wines show far from a ”typical German“ uniformed, primary fruit driven style and do not have a spiky acidity either. They show rather herbaceous with much finesse, liveliness, complexity and a beautiful calmness and clarity.
