Andi Weigand is the third generation who produces wines in Weigand. Andi’s father was the first to make wine in his family. Andi took over the winemaking duties from his father in 2015, and in 2018 decided to make the conversion to organics and natural winemaking. He says his father, unusually for the area and his generation, was very supportive of his desire to go in this direction. He now works as a team with his father, directing all the winemaking decisions. His vineyards are located on the Iphöfer Kronsberg, a slope that features Keuper soil. He uses an 80 year old basket press and very large wooden barrels. While he has modernized the winery, he has also maintained tradition: every grape is picked by hand, and every wine is carefully handcrafted, with incredible attention to detail. All wines are filled without filtration or adding any sulfur.
Description: This 2019 wine made from hand-picked Silvaner grapes is an absolute specialty. Some of the grapes were stored in a Kvevri for 9 months without mixing ("pestles"), while others were in an amphora. Then the grapes were gently pressed with an old basket press and after a month of harmonization, they were bottled in the barrel. The SKIN impresses with its herbal notes and tastes fresh and fruity. A great orange wine!
