Shared accomodation

courbes 150x150Our flat "chez Juliette" is now occupied all year by a young couple who are helping us pave the way to a shared living space. The first milestone is to re-organise our waste recycling station and also to create a vegetable patch in the garden...and if you wish to share this experience then let us know, a bedsit and a small flat for two are still available.

Manual wine press

Thinking ahead for our future harvests, we tested a manual wine press using Pinot Noir grapes grown on our Hintenberg vineyard parcel....not bad at all!! After three weeks macerating in a stainless steel vat with regular stirring, it was ready and the juice poured out ! At present it is ageing in a 228 litre barrel and will not be on sale until 2018...prepare yourself for something really good!

Happy 2016 vintage

We were in the stariting blocks at beginning of October but not the unripe grapes....grapepicking actually started on 13th October for the Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Muscat and Pinot Noir. After a 7 day break it was time for the Riesling and Gewurztraminer. The harvest was plus abundant than last yaer with very good quality grapes, the team was motivated and the cellars themselves came alives as the fermentation started very quickly, a marvellous week and lovely juice....all is well for now. Here are some photos of the 2016 vintage and an extra special gift of songs sung for clonsing day by Kayte Abaffy and all who were present.

Treading grapes

IMG 7608Our woofer friends from California could not believe their ears; Press grapes with your feet ? Luke opens the dance and his eyes light up, amazing, what a sensation...an experience not to be missed, an absolute must and one we shall certainly repeat for 2017 vintage...fair notice for those who are tempted.

We love Cremant !

rvf2017The vineyard produces true wines without contrivances, providing good quality for a good price. Since 2010 the use of sulphur has been reduced to a minimum. The cremant and blended wines are really very interesting and the Grand Cru wines are made with talent, revealing the native tang of the Wineck slopes. The real prize this year is the cremant with notes of brioche and orange flower, tonic efferveescence, plenty of volume and a touch of dryness to finish. Ideal for enhancing smoked fish (noted 15/20). Our Riesling Grand cru Wineck Schlossberg earns a deserved 16/20 "delicate and open, revealing notes of aniseed, aromatic herbs and a citrus finis. The mouth would benefit from a little more maturity but the final is already explosive, a very promising wine". Good notes were attributed for the Gentil de Katz 14,5 and the Voyou de Katz earnt 14, the Pinot Gris Grand Cru Wineck 15 and Pinot Noir 2013 14,5.
