Kistenmacher-Hengerer and the 'Junges Schwaben'
In our quest for natural wines we are very selective and do not accept any conventions on our philosophy to offer pure products and accessible 'wild wines'.
Guided by locals in the German region 'Württemberg', we came across the wines of Kistenmacher-Hengerer, close to Heilbronn.
Referred to as 'the crazy gang', the locals pointed us to a gang of 5 young winemakers who kind of breached with the traditional winemakers in the region and gradually started to share experiences. These Junges Schwaben share the same philosophy and values namely honesty, craftsmanship, sincerity, love of nature, and strive for the highest possible quality. They were awarded the ARTVINUM Prize as European young winemaker of the year in 2010.
This was off course a trigger for further investigation and with success. Driven by passion and a firm philosophy that good wine is made in the vineyard, on top of '500 years' of experience, Kistenmacher-Hengerer matches perfectly with our philosophy to offer pure products to our customers. Furthermore in 2014 they were selected by the German gastronomical magazine 'Fineschmecker' as one of the best winemaker and all the 'Junges Schwaben' received recognition for the increasing quality they produce since the early start of their collaboration. All the more reason to start hopefully a long lasting relationship...
