Teufelstal Pinot noir and Gewurtztraminer vineyard has been planted on well rested soil that hasn’t been farmed for several decades and we planted it when already full immersed in the biodynamic viticulture. The beautiful south-western sloping hill felt like it was always destined to be home to noble grapes like Pinot noir and Gewurtztraminer. Our Pinot noir is a very diverse massale selection (i.e. a huge selection of different unique individual plants, as opposed to clone plantation, which are a commonplace practice during the last decades). We have found source material for our Pinot noir in Bourgogne, the home of this great grape variety. Part of the vineyard is planted with massale selection combining the best burgundy clones as researched by the ATVB association in Beaune. The larger part of the vineyards is essentially a genetic replica of the extraordinary Clos des Epenaux vineyard in Pommard, that was planted in 1920’s. This selection contains more than 400 unique individual plants and thus creates an extremely diverse and resilient vineyard that translates to very unique and complex expression in wine and of distinct character reflecting each vintage uniquely.
