If 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.
