Rheinhessen – Germany
Carol and Erik are passionate about the nature of their Weingut Riffel Pinot Blanc. They manage 16 hectares of vineyards in a biodynamic manner in Bingen am Rhein. Their top locations include the legendary Scharlachberg with Katharinenzins. They believe firmly in bio-dynamic principles because they want to preserve the planet earth for our children. The more soil activity with earthworms and micro-organisms, the healthier and better aerated the soil is. The vines appreciate this and thrive better. The more different plants , flowers and herbs grow in the vineyard, the more diverse the animal and insect world develops . This is good for the environment and perfect for their wine! Weiss Burgunder, or Pinot Blanc, is a grape typically grown in the Rheinhessen wine region. A lovely combination of pear and fleshy peach flavours combined with a waft of lemon zest and almond meal which is typical to Pinot Blanc. Definitely worth giving Weingut Riffel a try. We also sell their organic Dornfelder and Pinot Gris. Pair with: Soft cheese like brie or goats cheese with truffle. Cream based pasta’s will also work.
In the monthly wine subscription, you receive a monthly delivery of wines curated by our sommeliers, based on the type preference you select (red wine, white wine or both). This helps subscribers to discover new styles and varieties, which you wouldn’t normally come across or buy. Wine club members pay a selected amount into their wine club account every month. We don’t deliver any wine to them until they place an order for the specific wines they chose using their account balance. In short, the subscription product is for wine drinkers wanting to discover new wines and are happy for us to chose for them where the wine club is for those who know what they like and want to have control over which wines they receive. Both monthly subscriber and wine club members receive discounted prices on all orders.
We endeavour to source wines from small family-operated vineyards, who are either certified organic, bio-dynamic, or working towards this. All certified organic wines will be labelled as such, in our online store. Currently, 85% of the wines we sell are certified organic so there plenty to choose from. If you head to the menu on the website select Wine Method / Organic Wine and that will show you all the wine in our shop which is certified organic.
