Weis Clones: Quality Tried and Tested

We are responsible for propagating 8 clones. We have propagated 4 of our own: Riesling clones Weis 1 and Weis 21 as well as the Müller-Thurgau clone Weis 210. We have also purchased four Burgundy variety clones: Pinot Blanc clone 36 Wm*, Pinot Gris clone 63 Wm, Pinot Noir clone 82 Wm and Saint Laurent Clone Weis 2000.

*Wm = Windesheim

All of our Riesling material, from the best selling and internationally acclaimed clone Weis 21, to clones Weis 17 and Weis 1, are distinguished by their affinity for and adaptability to virtually any soil or climate suitable for the Riesling variety, their consistent level of production and, above all, their outstanding flavour complexity and typicity in the finished wine.
