Don't forget these...


From 55 years old vines, planted on poor shell limestone. Whole cluster basket press, spontaneous fermentation, followed by an 11 months élevage in barrel, on the lees, without racking.

In 2016, Stefanie and Fabian Lassak took over the family vineyard in Hessigheim, in Württemberg, Germany. In a region where conventional farming and winemaking is the norm, they embraced organic farming with biodynamic preparations and meticulously worked the soil to bring it back to life. The old vines of Riesling, Pinot Noir and Lemberger (local name for the Blaufränkisch) grow on terraced steep slopes of shell limestone above the Neckar river. Naturally, they transform their high quality fruit meticulously with minimal intervention and age their wines in neutral vessels so they stay true to their place and vintage. They have been named among the 25 young winemakers to watch by Vinum, the largest German wine publication.
