Melanie Drese and Michael Völker's family winery was founded in 1843 in the northern part of Bavaria on the river Main. Since 2012 when they returned from publishing careers in London and New York they have turned the estate upside down: all of the 7ha are now farmed organically, the juice becomes wine without additives and gets bottled without fining, filtering and  never any added sulfites.


Michael & Melanie Volker do a lot of conservation work on their land, including preserving rare bat habitats. A portion of their profits goes back into bat conservation projects in the area.


The Silvaner grapes for this premium cuvée grow on a fairly steep plot close to the winery. Vines are 35 years old and have been farmed organically for more than 20 years. The wine has 6 days of skin contact and is vinified & aged in steel & old oak barrels.
