Willi Schaefer is a small family winery that dates back to the year 1121. They produce exclusively Riesling, because this grape variety is qualitatively the best that thrives on their weathered Devonian slate soil. Their parcels are located in Graacher Dompropst and Graacher Himmelreich, as well as in Wehlener Sonnenuhr. The plots are located on steep slate slopes and consist of up to 100-year-old, ungrafted vines.

They love Riesling when it’s elegant, transparent, and full of character. They pride themselves on the longevity of their wines.

Tasting notes:
'Faint apple nose. Quince and lime and layers of spice, deep and complex. Although still so young and for now the sweetness and the acidity are two separate things. Needs time to knit in a quiet cellar.' – Tamlyn Currin, JancisRobinson.com, 17++/20

Winemaker's comments:
'Small but beautiful—this is how you could describe the 2017 vintage in a nutshell. We are of course very happy about the “beautiful.” The distinctive Kabinett and Spätlese wines let us almost forget the anxiety of 2017 growing season. In the cellar, we have polished and fruity Rieslings with a refreshing acidity. They delight us with their brilliance and clarity. We were unable to produce village-level Rieslings and dessert wines this vintage.' – Christoph Schaefer, Winemaker
