Pfalz, Germany

Hannes and Claudiu are based in South Pfalz, their vineyards are scattered around the villages of Ilbesheim, Arzheim, and Leinsweiler in the municipality of Landau surrounded by the stunningly beautiful Palatinate forest. They grow native and international grapes. The majority of these are 30 years old. The vineyards close to the forest are predominantly composed of limestone and other areas of red sandstone located about 200m above sea level.
They have been organically certified for the past 6 years and have taken it further preferring to use tea sprays on their vines than sulphur and copper. Their wines are all vinified semi-carbonic and aged in old 500 litre oak, nothing added and nothing taken away. Their wines have a certain energy and life that make them incredibly drinkable.

Red and white grapes from 2021 and 2020 are blended together to create a balanced acidity.
