The Egon Müller dynasty is member of the First families of wine organisation. Egon III extended the winery in 1954 by purchasing Weingut “Le Gallais”. This winery with 2.5 hectares (6.2 acres) vines in Wiltingen, comprising the single vineyards “Kupp” and “braune Kupp” hailed originally from family Metz, one of the founders of the Luxembourg-based ARBED. Egon Müller purchased one half and took the part of Madame Rochon at rent. With 35 hl/ha annual bottle production, he is one of the small, but renowned producers in the Mosel region. He is particularly known for the quality of his Rieslings.
