Dhroner Hofberger

Romantic side valley

Dhroner Hofberger

The wines from the steep Dhroner Hofberger are filigree and taste of slate. These are not powerhouses, but Rieslings with elegance and delicate fruit. In 1897, the wine author Karl Heinrich Koch remarked, “Throner [sic] is one of the best growths [vineyards] on the Mosel.” The very steep and stony slopes of Dhroner Hofberg are covered with trees, hedges, and shrubs. The soil consists of large chunks of mostly gray slate mixed with quartz and iron oxide.
