Doctor at the Top
The independent US Wineguide is listing our 2015 Doctor GG among the 30 best dry Riesling of the vintage.
"Despite the intrinsic power of the vintage, the list of highlights is heavily tilted towards high end wines, i.e. “GG and equivalent.” In particular, Weingut Fritz Haag, Weingut von Kesselstatt,Weingut Schloss Lieser, Weingut Van Volxem and Weingut Wegeler produced some stunning dry Riesling which are clearly their best ever." - Mosel Fine Wines 28.11.2016
"Distinctive examples of Style and Terroir"
The independent US Wineguide awarded five wines from our 2015 vintage "outstanding":
Doctor GG, Doctor Spätlese and Doctor Auslese
Sonnenuhr GG and Sonnenuhr Spätlese

One of the finest Doctors ever
Jancisrobinson.com awarded our 2015 Bernkastel Doctor Riesling GG VDP.GROSSE LAGE and 2015 Sonnenuhr Riesling GG VDP.GROSSE LAGE with 18 Points each. The Doctor was lauded as one of the finest ever made:
"Old prejudices die hard, and I am never convinced that the dry renditions of the Doctor can totally match the noble sweet versions in the excitement stakes. Nevertheless the 2015 Grosses Gewächs represents a valid effort, as it unleashes its slaty minerality to supplement the sweet citrus-fruit content. Add subtle nuances of honey, a dash of lemony acidity and a fine bitter-peel note, and you have one of the finest trocken Doctors ever made." Michael Schmidt for www.jancisrobinson.com
We are happy to be amongst the top eight GG Producers at the Mosel!

Geheimrat J Vertical Tasting
Andreas Larsson, Best Sommelier of the World in 2007, tasted 8 vintages of Geheimrat »J« between 1983 and 2013.
According to him this dry Grand Cru cuvee is a perfect example showing the longevity of Riesling and pairing exquisitely with fine cuisine.
Number two for our youngest Berg Rottland Spätlese
The international wine critic Jancis Robinson has just been honored by Prädikat Wine Estates for her exceptional dedication to the finest German wines. Her website jancisrobinson.com awarded our 2015 Rüdesheim Berg Rottland Spätlese 17,5 Points, the second highest score for natural sweet wines from the Rheingau.
"Still quite reserved on the nose, but with delightful notions of peach, nectarine and even some more exotic fruit. Lemon and honey is good for you, but sweet zesty orange and luscious honey is even better. The ample acidity of 2015 keeps the flavour lively and is perfected by a delicious citrus-peel finish." Michael Schmidt for jancisrobinson.com

German Number Two for 2004 Geheimrat J Sekt Brut
Mosel Fine Wines tastet over 60 Sekt samples for its comprehensive Sekt Review „Lets Talk About Sekt″ and comments the 2004 Geheimrat »J« Brut, disgorged in January 2014 as follows:
"This is a cracker of a sparkling wine, with quite some bergamot, spices and quince all delivered with a most delicate mousse and lively zest on the palate. The finish is clean and mouth-watering. What a stunning sparkling wine!This proves superb now but could even gain with some further bottle aging." 93P - MFW Nr 30 March 2016

Parker rates our Mosel Riesling
Our 2014 Bernkastel Doctor Riesling trocken GG could distinguish itself through its elegance, complexity and great aging potential. We are proud about the 92+ Points!
"The 2014 Bernkastel Doctor Riesling trocken GG offers a very clear and intense, coolish, finely aromatic and flinty bouquet. Elegant and round on the palate, this full-bodied and dense Riesling reveals a great intensity and complexity, and finishes with power, grip and concentration; it has a great aging potential. I suppose this wine will truly start showing its talents no earlier than 2021." - Stephan Reinhardt für erobertparker.com - März 2016
The same note was given to the 2014 Bernkasteler Doctor Riesling Spätlese. Our 2014 Wehlen Sonnenuhr Riesling trocken GG was ratet 91+ Points, our 2014 Bernkastel Lay Riesling feinherb and 2014 Graacher Riesling Feinherb were awarded 90+ and 90 Points respectively.

Robert Parker rates our Rheingauer GG
We are proud about the 92 Points for our 2014 Winkel Jesuitengarten Großes Gewächs. Robert Parker declared it as the "probably best wine from this vineyard" in 2014:
"From one of the warmest terroirs in the Rheingau the 2014 Riesling Winkel Jesuitengarten offers a clear, deep, rich, super ripe, spicy and elegant fruit on the nose. This leads to an elegant, full-bodied, rich and powerful wine with lots of finesse, freshness and vibrating minerals. The finish is long, complex, and stimulatingly pure and salty. This is probably the best Jesuitengarten of the vintage and Wegeler's most balanced Grosses Gewächs." Stephan Reinhardt 14.01.2016
Our 2014 Oestrich Rosengarten GG received 91 Points. The 2014 Geisenheim Rothenberg GG was ratet 90+ Points.
Part of Germany's Top 25
The famed and very influential website jancisrobinson.com awarded our 2014 Geisenheimer Rothenberg GG 18 Points, the second highest mark among all Riesling Grosses Gewächs or GG in the Rheingau. We have a reason to be proud : Our wine also made it into the small group of Germany's 25 best GGs!
Welcome at Wegeler Estates!
We are a family-run estate with a sense for our history and tradition. Since 4 generations now, we share the same passion for Riesling, which we cultivate to a 100% in our vineyards along the Rhine and the Mosel river banks.
