Generations

The special connection to the vineyards and the vines has grown over several generations. As early as 1881, the estate was founded by the forefather Jean-Baptiste Hellers. With joy and commitment to viticulture and hospitality they have now been working for four generations at Weingut Zilliken. Since 2009, the new generation - Patrick Zilliken and his wife Martina - have taken over the farm from their parents. After graduating from St. Urbans-Hof and from the Bischöflichen Winery in Trier, Patrick Zilliken trained as a viticulture and winemaking technician in Bad Kreuznach. He then worked in Luxembourg and South Africa before joining the family business in 2006. Riesling has been grown here in the Mosel since the 17th century. Lime-free, loamy slate floors (Devon shale) allow the Riesling vines to flourish brilliantly. It is not without reason that the world's most exclusive white wines come from this region.
