Spending the last warm day of this incredible summer at Austria's oldest winery, Nikolaihof, was without doubt one of the best decisions we made in 2018 😁
We had the pleasure of trying more than 30 outstanding wines, but the highlight of the evening was definitely the Riesling Vinothek 2002. After spending 16 years in a large wooden barrel, the wine was bottled just a couple of months ago.
A reserved but deep nose of fresh kiwi, green tea, camomile, hay, salted caramelized almonds and a touch of cold smoke in the background.
On the palate it presents itself with great elegance and energy, but it only slowly opens up fully to those who are willing to listen. At first very unassuming, it builds up ever more until it completely captures your palate with its subtle, stony minerality and lively manner. For several minutes you have the impression that your mouth is being electrified.
This wine is far less about its fine herbal tea notes and subtle aromas of tropical fruits than about its unstoppable pressure on the palate, proving unmistakably just how much more such a wine can be ... We are utterly convinced that wines like this can only come into being when man and nature work together in absolute harmony, and can only say thank you to Nikolaihof for continuing to cultivate and pass on this precious knowledge.

Dominique Lafon Bourgogne Blanc 2015. You know his wine is good when you have to decant the Bourgogne. Dominique Lafon reigns from Burgundy, France. He grew up in the family of Domaine Des Comtes Lafon. Starting his own label in 2008, he currently manages approximately 4.5 hectares in Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Volnay, and Beaune. The wines are fantastic and really showcase Burgundy's ideal cool climate for grape growing. Dominique Lafon stays true to Domaine Des Comtes Lafon's grape growing practice of organic and biodynamic farming. Clean, crisp, pure Chablis like minerality, with lemon zest, golden apples, pineapple, cream, and flint. Round on the palate, but with bright acidity bringing all the components together. Tastes like Mersault, but at a Bourgogne value! Drink up.
💫 Hoe was de pompoenoogst vandaag Hilly? 💫 Every Friday I pick up my groentepakket at De Zonnehorst. It’s my favorite shop in Nieuwleusen. (We actually have more than one🤪) De Zonnehorst is a biodynamic farm and Hilly and me are related, somehow through the Westerman family. De zonnehorst had a HUGE pumpkin harvest to action today. I hope they had lots of help and big pumpkins! In my groentepakket (veggies from the farm for my family to eat in the coming week) there was such utter autumn luxury! With Pattison pumpkin, shii-take, cavalo nero and some lush green stuff .. I forget the name. There is so much to write about the passionately run company Zonnehorst that I will post a Friday Farmday picture every week 🌸❤️ For now I say cheers from Amsterdam... after a long yoga day I am now getting ready for the Dam tot Dam run tomorrow .. with a good glass of red wine 👊🏻 .
Fabrice Gasnier é a quarta geração de viticultores em Chézelet e em 2008 obteve a certificação de cultura biodinâmica.
Esse raro Chinon blanc (a região de Chinon, no Loire, produz predominantemente tintos de Cabernet Franc) é um 100% Pineau de la Loire (Chenin Blanc). Maduro, tinha uma linda cor dourada. Seus aromas lembravam mel, madressilva, frutas de caroço maduras. Em boca ainda possuía uma acidez refrescante, bom volume e corpo que enchia a boca toda, com final de média duração.
Linda expressão de uma Chenin Blanc madura do Loire que tanto amo.
Grazie amico Flávio!

Last night it felt like Fall. Autumnal equinox celebration at the farm with some biodynamic wines. The kind that are planted and harvested according to the moon phases. This appeals to the #paganwitch in me. #mabon#biodynamic#naturalwine

Om vinet i förra posten fick oss att tänka i strukturerade termer så inbjuder Marcel Jouberts ofiltrerade & osvavlade Fleurie till friare associationer. Till exempel det genialt lurviga soundet på gamla fina Bandwagonesque. Eller minnet av att måla med vattenfärger utomhus en varm sommardag. En mjuk balans, en flödig känsla, en självklar drickbarhet. Ingen tvekan om vilket av de två vinerna vi gillar mest.
This is our last nucleus box of the season. This one is pretty heavy. We put a virgin queen inside & on the next check noticed the workers had locked her inside the cage. We checked for weeks & finally noticed last night she started to lay eggs. This time of year is bitter sweet. The bitter side is the end of the season is getting close. But the sweet part is getting more time to spend with the family. When do you stop making splits for the year?
Feints is a blend of Arneis, Dolcetto, Barbera and Nebbiolo Blend biodynamicly farmed in California wine made in Utah. This natural wine is very floral, with lots of tart red fruit notes. Stop in and try it out! Here till 8pm.
