The Producer

About Hild

In the Upper Mosel, where limestone dominates instead of slate, Elbling reigns supreme, representing a winemaking culture steeped in tradition. Matthias Hild, tending to six hectares in Wincheringen, embodies this ethos, cherishing Elbling's rigorous purity and toothsome acidity. For him, an Elbling with less than 8.5 grams of acid felt foreign, akin to questioning its identity. Cultivating terraced vineyards of old-vine Elbling, some over 70 years old, Hild produces "Zehnkommanull," a bone-dry wine named for its consistent 10% ABV, reflecting the resilient spirit of this historic grape variety.
