Stephan Attman describes his winemaking as “not doing the wrong thing at the wrong time.” The estate’s premium wines are treated with a minimalist approach and with the highest respect in the cellar. Gentle clarification, natural and spontaneous fermentation and the abandonment of fining agents create wines with a distinctive indigenous and very elegant style. Pumping the juice or wine is never necessary in the gravity flow winery, allowing for minimal, and gentle vinification.
The fact that this estate is crafting some of the very best dry wines in Germany is no fluke, rather a result of nearly obsessive winemaker Stephan Attman’s commitment to both dedicated cultivation of Deidesheim and Forst’s best sites and meticulous work in the cellar. The Phalz is one of Germany’s warmest and driest wine growing regions due to the rain shadow effect from the Haardt mountains (an extension of the Vosges mountains found in Alsace). Von Winning maintains some of the oldest parcels in Grosses Gewächs vineyards smattered across Forst, Deidesheim, and Ruppertsberg. Attman’s every decision is informed by great enthusiasm and experiences at estates in the Cote d’Or and abroad. For example, Attman’s newer vines are planted at a very high vine density- 9500 vines per hectare, as opposed to the typically under 5000. This creates competition amongst the vines, forcing the roots to grow deep, naturally reducing yields. Attman has adopted the single cane trellising system, prevalent in Burgundy, and Grosses Gewächs wines ferment in 500mL French barrels. Von Winning practices organic and sustainable farming practices.
This textured Pinot shows classic structure and bright fruit flavors from the whole cluster fermentation. This wine ages in oak barrels for 8-10 months on the fine lees. Produced using organic/biodynamic farming practices, hand-harvested fruit, native yeast fermentation, and bottled unfined / unfiltered.
This Chardonnay is a total CA babe. It’s vibrant and fresh with a silky palate and touch of sea salt on the finish. In short, it’s an all-around crowd pleaser.
Organic farming practices and only 90 cases produced.
This world-class red wine from Emidio Pepe is the benchmark bottle for Montepulciano produced wordlwide. Expect a rich (yet not overripe by any means), multidimensional wine that seriously overdelivers. Major wine publications have anticipated that this wine will reach its peak drinking window from 2013-2028 – meaning now’s the time to jump!
Organic and biodynamic farming practices, hand-harvested, native yeast fermentation, no fining/filtering and no added sulfites.
Forget what you thought you knew about Riesling. This natural, skin-contact expression from Domaine Bohn shows a whole ‘nother side of what the variety can do – and now with over ten years of age on it, a brand new layer of complexity is settling in.
Orange wine lovers, this is a one-of-a-kind tasting experience. Due to its age and natural vinification, we recommend decanting before enjoying.
