The region’s speciality? The white wine, with its yellow colour and a nose with notes of citrus. A renowned crop which has benefited from an AOC (Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée) since 2010, it is the result of extensive work by Moselle winemakers.

Different grape varieties are grown here. Pinot Noir, Gris, Blanc, Auxerrois, Mûller Thurgau, Riesling and Gewûrztraminer provide the artistic palette for our winemakers. The light, delicate white wines are made with Auxerrois and Pinot Gris. The finely tannic reds and fruity rosés are made with Pinot Noir.

Inaugurated in 2012, the Wine Route is divided into three sections, along the Vic-sur-Seille road, around the Pays Messin and along the Pays des Trois Frontières. Today we are visiting the latter. Are you ready?



We meet up in Contz-les-Bains, near the Luxembourg and German borders, to start our journey. We start with an unmissable stop at the Domaine Sontag. Claude and Mélanie are delighted to welcome us to their winery for a tasting. In the summer, it’s aperitif time at the winery every Friday! A glass of wine with a selection of cold meat and cheese from our local farmers. A good way to get into the swing of things?

We continue our walk in a postcard setting. The views over the hillsides, picturesque villages and the Castle of the Dukes of Lorraine in the distance are breath-taking. Next time, we’ll stop and visit the maze of streets in Sierck-les-Bains.



We’ve already reached the village of Haute-Kontz overlooking the Moselle valley. Following the path through the vineyard, we find ourselves in front of the Domaine Mur du Cloître. Jean-Paul and Emmanuelle take us on a guided tour of the site and treat us to a short lesson on wine.

The route continues through the same breath-taking scenery and we arrive at our third and final stop, Petit-Hettange and the Domaine du Stromberg. Jean-Marie, Sarah and their two partners welcome us and share their know-how and passion for vines with us.
