A purist in the vineyard

A purist in the vineyard

As winemaker Daniel Schweizer puts it, "Natural wines are pure wines. Wines with character. Edgy. Unconventional. Unadorned. And you can taste that with every glass."

After studying "classic" viticulture for most of his life, Daniel started his own winery in 2014 to make wine with a zero-zero approach - nothing added or subtracted, aka no pesticides, chemicals, filtering etc.

Using naturally occurring yeasts in his vineyard to spontaneously ferment his grapes, he creates new wines that reflect each year's character.

Working harmoniously with the land, his two horses, Funa (left) and Wäldergraf (right), replace tractors and cultivate soil year-round - a truly ecological approach to farming.

Even the labels on his wines indicate which of his four-footed friends helped craft his wines.

We are smitten by Daniel's wines - a fresh approach to German wines. This season we're sipping through a thirst-quenching orange and delicious rosé.

Weisser Brunnen >>
Deeply satisfying - It’s fruity with Anjou pear and preserved lemons, and also grounded after spending 2 days on the grape skins, delivering a freshly-struck-match intensity. The texture is both clean and gripping, like the fine grains of pear juice.

Rosa >>
A lively rosé made with Spätburgunder (German Pinot Noir) that’s light on its feet – exactly what you want to drink when white feels too light and red feels like too much. Big crushed raspberry with a delightfully cool glow, this will keep you refreshed and wanting more.
