Pure Alpine Delights
Breathtaking vineyards in the foothills of the Alps farmed organically and biodynamically by two emerging stars. Two producers, four wines, absolute class. Italy’s Dolomites and France’s Savoie are bringing it in today’s cool climate wine world.
This will be universal for all wines within this product template (in this example, all Schödl wines)
Bottles that are included
Dornach – 17 – Pinot Nero – 2020
A stunner, Dornach's vins de soif (thirst wine) is an alpine Pinot Noir that bursts with pleasure and personality. It’s elegant and lovely but don’t let the almost translucent hue fool you. This is serious wine from a top estate full of pure fresh fruit. Perfect with a slight chill.
Dornach – 12 – Pinot Bianco – 2019
Pinot Blanc needs certain things to truly thrive: complex soils, perfect sun exposure and a good breeze. Dornach, sitting at an elevation of 350 meters, in the idyllic Alto Adige region, is perfectly positioned to grow world class Pinot Blanc, and the farm’s embrace of the natural world and deft touch in the cellar creates a wine with intense, crystalline personality and passion.
Domaine Bärtschi - Sous les Rochers la Vigne – Chardonnay – 2019
Full of the minerality, freshness and tension you would expect from cool climate, deficit soils like these below the cliff of Manicle! Picked early to maintain acid and bright fruit flavors, and using only 30% oak, all used, this wine grown at the same latitude as its Savoie cousins, is a delicious introduction to the wines of Bugey and the region’s crown vineyard, Manicle.
Certified Organic w/Biodynamic Principles
Domaine Bärtschi – Sous les Rochers la Vigne – Pinot Noir – 2019
Fresh, spicy and granitic, Bärtschi’s 100% whole bunch Pinot Noir sees just a couple of weeks of maceration and a couple of punchdowns. This minimally extracted, judiciously oaked Pinot is expressive and pure, an alpine Burgundy of sorts. Totally unique and delicious.
