Weinschwärmer is named after the moth that lives around the vineyards, a delicacy for the local bats. The cuvée is made of 75% Pinot Gris and 25% Riesling. The first one is destemmed and fermented 1 week on the skins, whilst the second one is pressed directly. The outcome is rather elegant and fresh. Peach aromas and the slight oxidative note bring this orange to the next level!
Organic, No Added Sulfur, Vegan
Michael and Melanie left their corporate jobs behind and started making wine in Michael’s parents’ winery in 2013. After discovering their taste for natural wine, they converted the 6 hectare vineyard to organic practices. They’ve developed a repertoire of wild delights which are hand-harvested, indigenous-yeasts vinification without sulphur and unfiltered. As well as their natural range, they also make wines with purchased grapes which are very lightly sulphured and filtered for a slightly different market.
