Vater & Sohn
The Vater & Sohn (German for “father and son”) is our white wine blend. Müller-Thurgau – a crossing of Riesling and Madeleine Royale – is the main act here. The grapes all get stomped and pressed shortly after. Same happens to the grapes of one Silvaner vineyard. Fermentation and aging happens partly in big barrels, partly in steel. The wine stays on the lees until the following summer to be finally blended with a splash of Riesling and bottled after harvest.
The name is a memory of, an homage to the time when Michael and his dad still worked on blends together.
