Matthias grew up in a small, family-owned winery situated in the Kamptal. During his time in South Africa and Southern France, inspired by his teachers Craig Hawkins of Lammershoek and Tom Lubbe of Matassa his passion for natural wines grew steadily. Back home in the village of Etsdorf he started to produce wines the way he liked it – as if he would make them just for himself. Matthias now works 10ha planted with Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Zweigelt, Müller Thurgau and Chardonnay.

Winemaking This wine is a blend of three different younger vineyards. Grapes are hand harvested and ferment as whole bunches with occasional pigeage to result in a semi-carbonic fermentation in 60 year old 3500 liter barrels. The wine is left in contact with the skins for about 2 weeks. It is pressed off the skins to fiberglass tank for 2 years of elevage, and then is bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with a small amount of sulfur added. 

Notes Organic, Natural, unfiltred and unfined
