2016 Wilde Heimat

How we made it

The second vintage from this vineyard which we had inherited from our friend Stefan Vetter. It’s an approximately 40-something year old Silvaner vineyard, growing on the steepest top of the hill on meager Keuper soil. Loads of sun, hard to farm.
About 50% of the grapes were fermented on the skins for ten days the rest was pressed after a night of skin-contact. Aging in 60-year old oak the wines came together in spring 2018 and remained in a tank until bottling in July 2018.
