The Schmitt winery has been in the family for over 230 years with Bianka and Daniel working their 16 hectares for the last decade. Bianka comes from Hungary and they met in 2012 when she was cellar hand in his parent’s winery. They work in full biodynamics which they learned from Alsace vigneron Patrick Meyer and are one of only 80 producers in Germany to be Demeter certified.
The aroma of roses (typical of Riesling on skins), the combination of tannins and acidity working off each other to exciting effect. Ripe citrus becoming more on the apple and orchard fruit as it develops.
