The Mosbacher famiy have been growing grapes in Forst for over 200 years. In 1920, Richard Mosbacher Sr. led changes at the estate and named it after his father Georg as "Weingut Georg Mosbacher Erben" or "Wine estate of Georg Mosbacher's heirs". Since the 1920's the estate has been handed down to Richard Mosbacher Jr. and now into the stewardship of the next generation, Sabine and Jürgen in 1992.
Mosbacher's grapes grow in the middle of the 'Mittelhaardt' wine district on 20 hectares across the winegrowing villages of Forst, Deidesheim, Wachenheim and Niederkirchen. The vineyards are herbicides free and fertilizers are used only after thoroughly analyzing soil conditions. Beneficial plants and insects are protected and vegetation is planted between the rows of vines. Maximum yields are strictly managed with reduction pruning in the spring, intensive leaf canopy management, thinning of clusters in the summer, and selective grape picking by hand during harvest.
The subsequent careful development and processing of the wines in the cellars preserves the typical character which the soil has given to the estate's grapes. The results are delightful wines with an unmistakable fruitiness and a fresh and lively character.
