Max-Ferd Richter

The estate has been in the Richter family for 300 years, beginning with a vineyard purchase in the Brauneberger in 1643.

The family house was built in 1774 and in 1880 the winery was constructed which today houses a hugely impressive collection of large, old oak barrels and looks really like it should be in North Wales given the slate construction. The estate today consists of 20 hectares of vines which is quite large for this part of the Mosel and is run by 9th generation Dirk Richter and his son Constantin. The vines are in top sites throughout the Middle Mosel but with key vineyards on the Brauneberger Juffer and around their home village of Mülheim. Vineyard management is as natural as possible with no pesticides or herbicides used and fermentation uses natural yeasts with minimum intervention in oak. The resulting wines are full of flavour and very long lasting.

Vintage guide

The warmest year on record, 2022 has produced some super results. The wines of 2021 are lighter in style and more aromatic with evident acidity compared with the previous two vintages. 2020 saw a warm summer, giving ripeness, while a prolonged harvest has given freshness and perfect quality fruit. The 2019s show wonderful rapier-like style, good weight and depth, yields are lower than the generous 2018 vintage. “A glorious vintage” said one grower, amongst many superlatives bandied about for 2018. For the first time in 10 years growers were truly happy with the quantity and the quality. The resulting wines are pure, rich, aromatic, and show a fine acidity. An early harvest following frost earlier in the season meant 2017 produced excellent light, fruity wines with great finesse. Weather conditions were tricky in 2016 and growers had to earn their stripes; the early season was wet, which reduced yields, followed by a hot summer with cool nights bringing excellent aromatics but with wines a little lighter than 2015. The brilliant 2015 vintage took place in ideal conditions and produced wonderfully ripe wines in all styles. Kabinetts are a bit short in quantity, but the dry wines especially are very approachable. 2014 saw a good crop of light, well-balanced wines with well integrated acidity.
