Vineyard Notes: Stefan is at the forefront of the natural wine movement in Germany. As such, he practices organics and adheres to biodynamic principles. Everything here is done by hand. For the most part, Stefan picks earlier, looking for ripe, clean grapes with higher acidities.

Winemaking Notes: Sylvaner fruit is gently pressed with a basket press for four to six hours. The wine is aged in mostly used barrels. During élevage, the wines are topped off, but that’s about it. They are bottled without fining or filtering and with a minuscule addition of sulfur for stability.
