“Elbling for tradition, burgundy for passion”
For hundreds of years our family lives in Nittel and is just as long active in viniculture. But only in 1936 Heinrich Matthias Apel decided to produce his own wines. This work was continued in 1988 by his sons Harald and Hubert, who were absolutely determined, uncompromising and with many unconventionally ideas. Those first years were hard. Entirely new plantings, restructuring, high standards for quality and small achievements but also setbacks, shaped this time. It was worthwhile: Today we know how to understand each vineyard and we are able to offer each grape variety exactly what it needs for its’ optimal ripeness. We are especially proud that we helped a cultural good of the Mosel to a new glamour – “Elbling”, the oldest variety of Germany.
