Catharina is undoubtedly one of the rising stars of Burgundy. Following her winemaking degree in Germany, Catharina has gone on to train within some of the world’s most iconic estates, such as Domaine Romanee Conti, Cecile Tremblay, Comte Armand, and Marquis d'Angerville.

During these years of tutelage, she has diligently purchased various small parcels across Burgundy, notably in Volnay, Beaune, and Pommard. Alongside a few other plots that she rents, Catherina follows biodynamic principles and grows Chardonnay, Aligoté, Pinot Noir, and Gamay.

It is fair to say that Catherina's winemaking style is very much hands-off, allowing her meticulous farming and the health of her vines to speak for themselves. Despite so many natural challenges in Burgundian grape growing, Catherina's vineyards are flourishing and she is able to release wines that almost never need any sulphur additions.

Stylistically, her wines offer up intense concentration, depth, and terroir expression. Her premier crus are made to go the distance and we recommend some additional cellaring time before cracking into them!
