Additional Information

The vines are close to the woods, and the shade prevents the grapes to get too much sun which yields more delicate wines. Spontaneous fermentation in used barrels of 300 and 500 liters, with complete malolactic conversion. Two years on precipitated yeast without stirring. No clarification or filtration.
We founded our small winery in 2010. Since then a lot happened. As it was totally clear for us that wines without any manipulation will be our way, so it was when we farmed the first vineyard in the terraced vineyard site Gambach Kalbenstein. We felt deeply in love and finally moved to Gambach in 2015 . Right now more than 85% of the vineyards we farm are situated in the Kalbenstein. It is the very changeover of shell limestone to red sandstone, with so many mixtures of the two soils at the changeover. Our goal is to catch the expression of the terroirs with our wines. In total we farm 3.2 ha of vines. Our main grape variety is the typical Franconian Sylvaner, complemented with some Müller-Thurgau, Riesling and Pinot Noir.
