The Origin and Apogee of Mosel Pinot Noir:
2022 Stein Pinot Noir “Red Light” & Pinot Noir “Waechter”

The last time we were able to secure enough of this wine to do an offering was for the 2013 vintage. This time, go long because it may be another five years and July and August will be no joke.

The Mosel's Radical Vocabulary - Stein Ohne: 2011 Sekt and 2014 Riesling

“Ohne” means “without” in German. They are Ulli Stein's studies in minimalism.

The Razor’s Edge of Greatness:
2015 Stein Riesling St. Aldegunder Himmelreich Kabinett Trocken

Kabinett Trocken is unlike anything else. When done well, this category of wine provides kaleidoscopic flavor in the most focused, most delicate of formats.
