Welcome in the winery Amlinger&Sohn!
Wine & more: Inspiring variety
Our winery Amlinger & son is locacted at the lower part of the Moselle river in Germany, called the "Terrassenmosel" or "terrace-Moselle"; between Trier and Koblenz, at the narrowest and maybe most beautiful Moselle-bow. Our grapes grow in the sunny Moselle-valley, on 600.000.000 year old gray and brown slate. They grow in the "Calmont", Europe's steepest vineyard, and the "Frauenberg" in Neef and around the old cloister-ruin "Stuben".
For more than 19 centuries, since the ancient Roman time, the wine has been grown in the climatically favoured Moselle-valley. Here, in the warmest slopes of Germany, prosper wines which unite everything in themselves: Sun and slate, the beauty of the landscape and the care of the winegrower.
The vineyards: Slate, 600.000.000 years old, from the Devonian, which stores the heat of the sun. Deep in the soil (old vines up to 12 meters deep) are the roots of our best Riesling and Pinot vines.
Tradition - in our winery since 1570: Tradition means craft-like, gentle working in the vineyard, during the harvest, in the cellar. This means careful care of the good, old vineyards.
Innovation - this means: to dare to do something new, to make a difference, such as reduced harvests to improve quality even to the extent of lower profits. But innovation also means to give up unnecessary techniques and far too new procedures.
We rely on both, tradition and innovation, young and old. The result are our wines: Pleasant, joyful and still honest and typical for the region. Perhaps they just resemble the people that create them a little.
From the filigree Riesling to the thick Dornfelder, from the fruity Pinot Noir to the heavy Chardonnay - an inspiring variety, directly from the wine grower. Find your favorites. One wine after the other waits to be discovered by you. Enjoy!
Winetasting in the Winery
We would like to welcome you to one of our already traditional wine tastings. For example, an evening with a suitable culinary delight before the winemaker leads you personally through our selection of fine wines. In our winery Amlinger&Sohn we offer you the advantage to discover a wide variety of different wines - red and white, approx. 35 different sorts of wine. Everyone can find his personally favourite.

Guest rooms in the winery
Feel the romance of the old winery, the vintner shows you personally, where our wine grows. All houses are located in the sleepy and quite wine grower village of Neef, surrounded by vineyards and the Hunsrück forests.
Enjoy our traditional hospitality in our comfortable guest rooms (***) in the winery, every room equiped with shower/WC/TV. This is our parent branch, build more than 120 years ago by our ancestors.
Since this time the house is our family-property and is, of course, also used as winery. It is located in the wine-village Neef, directly at the Moselle and only separated from the river only by the village-street.
Facing the Moselle and the sun lies our big terrace, where you are heartily welcomed to enjoy a good glass of wine in the evening-sun and to watch life at the river.
The approximately 80-100cm thick quarrystone-walls of the old winery are built from the same slate on which also our Riesling vines grow - they were dugged out of the old local quarry in Neef at the "Frauenberg". And not only because the thick slate keeps the rooms pleasantly cool also in the summer, the wine may even taste better here, where it comes from, than at your home.
