For the sake of the environment, health and wine. Due to a respiratory disease, Hermann Schmalzried was forced to give up his profession as a winemaker. His love for wine gave him the courage to look for an alternative to conventional viticulture. Thus, in 1978, he became the first organic winemaker in Württemberg and thus a member of the Federal Association of Organic Wine Estates (BÖW). This means that we refrain from using herbicides, synthetic chemical insecticides and organic fungicides, the application of synthetic chemical fertilizers and physical oenological processes and treatment agents.
Natural plants. In a joint project of the EcoVin Association Württemberg, the brand *N* was created, which stands for “Naturgewächs”. The goal in this: to create distinctive wines that have been produced as naturally as possible. The imprint of the terroir are in the foreground here, which creates complex and particularly digestible wines.
