Since the first time I have tasted a glass of Riesling I know it is special. It is special on its character, it is special on its capacity to express the terroir and it is special by its plasticity to produce so many great styles.
Believing that in life, from time to time, we need to be lucky, that same thing brought me to the Mosel region a few years ago, from what was a harvest experience outside from Portugal, quickly transformed into this Riesling madness. the same luck allows me to be a winemaker in two different countries.
At Willems Willems the path is well-marked, the goals are clear and the wine style is defined. The great work done in the past, together with the new generation ambition on growing the reputation of their estate setts a very stable base to work on and keep producing clear, fresh forward and elegant wines in the Saar region.
More than the responsibility I assume as manager of the estate, it’s my goal to keep respecting the production philosophy, the quality standards and the great region of the Saar and it’s unique Rieslings!
