"Konzer Tälchen" is the affectionate name used by the locals when referring to their stretch of land south of Trier. The small winegrowing village of Konz-Oberemmel, there where the Saar and Mosel meet, is also the home of the family winegrowing estate Willems - Willems.
Riesling and Pinot varieties thrive on these south-facing vineyards. The slope's natural parabolic shape provides the vines with protection from the wind, even as it collects and stores the sun's heat. The climate here is almost Mediterranean as a result. The Devonian slate soils, mixed with fine granular deposits from the time in which the Konzer valley was a river bed, lend the region's wines their unmistakable blend of stony minerality and sophisticated fruit.
