From 2Naturkinder: “Our urban winery was founded in 1843 in the northern part of Bavaria on the River Main. Since 2012 we have turned it upside down: all of our 6ha are farmed organically and we’ve put a lot of effort in the soil which we understand to be a living being with desires and aversions. We aim to produce lively and energetic wines which come from a healthy soil and benefit from the diversity around them.”
One of the few vineyards we actually own is situated in Rödelsee, 15 minutes away from the winery. It was the last vineyard going into the conversion to organic farming in 2016. It’s in the middle section of the hill (called Schwanberg) with a gentle slope and an extraordinary soil. The grapes are beautiful and there are a lot of them.
They were harvested in October towards the end of harvest season when fall had seriously kicked in with lower temperatures. This led to a very cold must (the grapes were destemmed and crushed) macerating for a week before fermentation finally (but slowly) started kicking in. After ten days the must was pressed and the wine finished fermentation in a steel tank where it remained until bottling.
