Fernweh | Fürsich Viognier

Viognier’s peachy baby sister

Skip to product information

The whole winery smelled like peaches when the winemaker, Sebastian (a German expat), and his wife, Claire, were pressing these grapes. Fürsich means 'for oneself', but also sounds like the word for peach in German – which instantly became the wine’s name. We’re in love with this wine and its meaning. Exploding with fresh, tart, earthy, yellow peach goodness – like a peach Sour Patch or juicy nectarine – it’s meant for your enjoyment. This is also the lightest, freshest Viognier we’ve ever tried. Perfect for warm days, nights, and rooms.

Their Cred

Fernweh, /’fern-vee’/ noun (German) from Fern (“far”) +‎ Weh (“pain”). Can be literally translated as “farsickness” or longing for far-off places. An aching for travel, exploration and the unknown. These wines are inspired by travel and everyday adventures - driven by daydreams and the belief that anything is possible. The grapes are sourced from biodynamic farms in Santa Barbara County. The wine is a new project from winemaker, Sebastian Lowa, a German expat, who found his love of wine while camping and surfing up the California Coast with his wife Claire. They are involved in every aspect of the harvest, foot stomping, winemaking, and story behind each wine label. Every bottle bursts with adventure and cures the longing for a new experience.
