Berry, peppery and crunchy at the same time. The Blaufränkisch Heide has a fruity, fresh taste of blackberries and pepper. It is strong and intense, but remains supple on the palate. The ideal drinking temperature is 16-18 ° C. An ideal partner to roast duck breast under the walnut crust with roasted potato noodles. And also a very successful choice with cheese, especially with spicy hard cheeses such as the Gryerzer with fresh pumpkin seed bread."
“When my wines taste vibrant and alive, then I know that all the work has been worthwhile and I feel an inner peace and deep satisfaction.” Birgit Braunstein’s family has a 400-year-old tradition of wine cultivation. Wines have been cultivated on the family farm since 1632. The term sustainability gains a whole new meaning in such circumstances.
