f you’d ask us who currently produces the most exciting wines in Germany’s Nahe region, we’d instantly say Christine Pieroth. After taking over her family’s estate in Burg Layen, she decided to steer it in a more natural direction – and added her own range of wines, under the piri.naturel label. Young, talented and unafraid of experimenting, all her wines are idiosyncratic, adventurous and bursting with life. She works with the utmost respect for her vines, cultivating them according to biodynamic principles, and her hand-drawn labels depict the lush plant life found around her vineyards. When she’s not among the vines, she tends to her garden full of vegetables, fruit and herbs. In short: a Winzerin who works in loving harmony with nature.
Natural Wine from the Nahe Valley
Riesling trocken 2019
Pét-nat scheurebe 2019
Fruit-driven sparkler with a day of skin contact. Refreshing, uplifting and dangerously drinkable – reminiscent of liquified pear ice pops
Riesling Nahegauer Landwein 2019
Cuvée from mostly Pinot Gris with a pinch of Pinot Noir. Unfiltered and unfined, no SO2 added. Nothing added, nothing removed.
Silvaner maischevergoren 2018
Oranje wijn van silvaner met 6 weken schilcontact. Energiek, complex, gelaagd en verrassend, met tonen van gedroogde abrikoos, sinaasappelschil, passievrucht, specerijen en medicinale kruiden.
