- When wine people talk about the Mosel, it's all Riesling, slope and what type of slate. When wine people talk about the Upper Mosel, it's usually very quiet. Not much to say, right? Up through the 19th century, Elbling was a go-to grape and the Upper Mosel was the epicenter. Under-appreciated and overlooked, Elbling, in the hands of Matthias Hild, chief drum-beater of the grape for decades, is a racy, electric joy.
