Markus Molitor took over his fathers Estate at 20 years of age. Although having been of young age, Markus had a clear vision of wine making. Every vintage and vineyard should show its characteristics. His wines illustrate depth and structure with the typical uniqueness of the Mosel terroir. The winery is based at the centre of the Wehlener Klosterberg site and cultivates vineyards in 15 different sites, each of which is unique in its own way – and only a "Molitor terroir" for this reason.
The bottles are colour coded according to the taste category of the wine. The dry wines have a white cap. The off-dry wines have a grey-green colour like slate. The naturally sweet and botrytis wines have a gold cap. However, the use of a gold cap for the Molitor Rieslings is not based on any quality evaluation as might be the case with other Mosel wineries who offer gold cap, long gold cap or extra-long gold cap wines.
