Touch wine. Accompany. Experience.
Birgit’s philosophy is easily explained. She handles her vines, grapes and wines with mindfulness, conscientiousness and intention. She accompanies her plants in harmony with nature, touching and feeling what is needed, rather than aimlessly toiling away. She aspires to capture the vitality of the earth in the wine glass. The results are wines that are vibrant, salubrious, structured, and deep – moving wines.
