Our family has been making natural wine for more than 500 years and now it is our turn to continue with this tradition. Alex’s father taught him everything which he was taught by his father – the knowledge about making ensouled natural wine. Maria & Alex took over the existing vineyards from Alex’s parents in 2011 with a clear vision on their minds:
We want to share our passion FOR natural wine with you.
Farming brings a lot of responsibility. We are aware of that and treat our land with a lot of respect and care. We focus on Rudolf Steiner’s biodynamic principles and make every effort to provide our vineyards with what they need. Never to lose sight of the holistic approach.
Our top priority in the vineyard is: Lots of hand crafting
Alex does everything by himself, with much help from his dad – Opa Leo. Every single working step is made by them personally. Hence 15 acre of land imply quite some workflow, Alex is always out in the vineyards, whereas Maria takes care of communication and their boys – Team Future: Pauli & Alois & Jakob
We make natural wine. Hence, we reject all forms of artificial additives, except low levels of sulphite supplements with some wines (sometimes, please take a look at the tech sheets). Fermentation always starts naturally. We don’t have temperature control. no air-condition in the cellar. And all wines are matured without sulphur supplements. no fining. no filtration.
We craft natural wine WITH joy, tickle, complexity, honesty and soul.
