Freedom in the vineyard.
Our Pinot Gris vines are a special experiment for us. We abstain completely from pruning and let the vines grow wild. In the way a natural metabolism is achieved the vines regulate the production of fruit on their own. The vines yield an above average number of bunches with extremely small berries. The yield volume is thus smaller than normal.
This brings the advantage of a high skin to fruit flesh ratio and thus
more aroma, extract and complexity. Because the vineyard has a truly
“unkempt” appearance, it receives the local dialect word for this,
“Graupert”, as its name.
