In the Luxembourg Moselle, there are many cellars and wineries. Stretching over more than 40 km, the vineyard that makes up the wine route stretches from Schengen, in the south of the country, to Wasserbillig, the last Luxembourg village on the road to Treves, DE. It is on this road (commonly called the "Wäistrooss" in Luxembourgish) that more than forty private winegrowers are installed. They meticulously cultivate the vines there and produce the best wines of our country. Sometimes with their families. Sometimes even for several centuries.
But if meeting these wine artisans, true winemaking artists, in the middle of their vines or in their own cellars is always a pleasant moment, being able to discover and taste all of their production then becomes an obstacle course. At the rate of one winemaker per week, you would spend the whole year there.
Boxes for all the curious
For this reason, and for the delight of wine lovers, the Wäistrooss.lu team very recently created a range of boxes entitled «Discovery & Tasting Boxes». Grouped around 3 themes, you will be able to get to know the real winegrowers of our country, the wines from the most beautiful terroirs of the Moselle and those made from the most typical grape varieties of Luxembourg.
Boxes on the «Winegrowers» theme.
Impossible to go wrong with the boxes of this theme. "Visit" one by one, the cellar of all our producers by discovering 6 different wines from their own cellars. This is the best way to taste the specialties of each of them and maybe even, to discover winemakers where you would not necessarily have stopped.
Boxes on the «Grape varieties» theme.
Not all existing grape varieties adapt to Luxembourg weather conditions. Today, between fifteen and twenty different grape varieties are planted in our country. Some are very confidential, others are the "great classics" of Luxembourg.
This is the best production of these classics, which we invite you to discover with our «Grape varieties» boxes. Thus, you will be able to learn how 6 different winegrowers vinify differently the grapes which nevertheless come from the same variety of vine.
Boxes on the «Terroirs» theme.
The wines offered by Wäistrooss.lu are largely local wines. And the terroir is the very identity of the grape that will be used to make the wine. Grapes are directly defined by their exposure to the sun, the water they draw through the feet of their vines or by the type of rock in which they are anchored. It would be very difficult for us to make a box of 6 different wines for each Luxembourg terroir, as the Moselle vineyard is fragmented from these different plots. We have counted so far close to a hundred. But it was possible for us to offer you boxes on the most "mythical" and most productive terroirs of the country. Thus, with our «Terroirs» boxes, you will be able to discover and compare how each winegrower exploits in his own way, a small piece of our territory that he shares in common with other neighboring winegrowers.
