Today the Max-Ferd Richter estate is owned by the same family that first bought vines in Brauneberg in 1643. The Richter Estate mansion and its French baroque garden were built in 1774, and the winery buildings, built in 1880, boast one of the largest oak barrel cellars in the Mosel. Max Ferdinand Richter is managed and operated by Dr. Dirk Max Ferd. Richter, the ninth generation of his family to do so. The tenth generation – Constantin Max Ferd. Richter – also works at the estate, continuing this family tradition.

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

This is super-fresh when sniffed in the glass. Citrus notes dominate: lemon aromas are twined around chalky, mineral notes. In the mouth, the concentration of the vintage is instantly evident and the minerals flow right from the front of the palate. There is a delicacy here; the sweetness is not in the least cloying, rather the softness of summer air playing in citrus groves, the trees quite possibly in flower. Enchanting stuff and the sort of riesling made only here in the Mosel. Bowes Wine original note

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained


All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
