The village of Rosswag is an incredible place, a viticultural treasure. The tiny village (population just over 1,200 inhabitants) is surrounded by an ancient amphitheater, a fortress of vines not unlike the “Terrassen-Mosel” built centuries ago.

These vineyards, as beautiful as they are, are profoundly expensive to farm. The majority of work must be done by hand. In the last few decades there have been enormous changes to the way wine is made and sold; financial pressures have seen many younger people heading to the big cities. The local cooperative, which farms 99% of these amazing vineyards, has handled the challenges of the new wine market better than most. 

Hannes and Olympia, strong advocates of organic and biodynamic farming, began to work with the cooperative to consider more sustainable farming practices, methods that could scale. They will help in the cellars to ferment and blend a special bottling for us. In return, we will pay a substantially higher price for the wine and guarantee a purchase – and we will hope for an eager market.

This is German Muscdet. Crunchy, mineral, textural and an overall great bang for your buck.
