Daniel, Jonas, how did you get the idea to take over the family estate together and produce your own wines?
Daniel: It was always clear to us. Even when we were children, we were very involved in the estate. We have always found the work in and with nature inspiring. However, we have also learned that it is demanding and that you have to invest a lot of time and energy. But at the end, you have your real own product in your hands – a great feeling.
Jonas: Furthermore, we have a lot of variety in our job: The work in the vineyards and on the grapes, in the cellar, in the office, in sales and marketing, in logistics. There are so many aspects, you are never bored.
Do you sometimes make progress by dispute or do you always agree?
Jonas: Neither nor actually. For sure, we do not always agree, but then we discuss the case and try to convince each other of our respective point of view. In the end, we always find a good compromise we both truly believe in.
Why do you attach so much importance to organic agriculture and „bio“?
Daniel: It’s a philosophy of life. In the past, I observed a lot my body and the effects different additives or pesticides had on me. Avoiding such substances tangibly helped me to feel better. In addition, it is important for us to maintain the soils for future generations as they are the basis of life for every winegrower.
Jonas: As soon as you can see how a completely natural balance is created, how the grapes can develop power and character in the vineyards, then you have found the right way of handling nature correctly and sustainably. That’s how, according to our philosophy, the best wines are created.
