Schloss Lieser - Thomas Haag

17 August 2017

Celebrated as the Winemaker of the Year 2015, along with several other prices and achievements the same year, Thomas Haag produces stunning wines at Schloss Lieser Estate by the Mosel. All his wines are fermented spontaneously under constant low temperature in the 100 year vaulted celler contributing to their distinctive and unique identity.

Thomas Haag currently have plots at the famous Grand Cru sites: Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Bernkasteler Doctor, Piesporter Goldtröpfchen and Juffer Sonnenuhr along with other.

He and his family undertake all tastings themselves. We had the pleasure of visiting the Winemaker in July as part of our trip to Mosel.
