A Wine That
could easily come from the Mount Etna or the Tenerife Island. Why? The vines for this Pinot Noir root deep in one of Germany's few great volcanic vineyards created millions of years ago. We love the directness and effortlessness that you can often find in wines grown on ancient volcanos. Here, Christoph and Alex take the best of both worlds by marrying the distinct smokey aromatics with a clear Burgundian signature. Gun powder meets Mozart.

Where and How?
This Pinot Noir grows on the renowned 'Kaiserstuhl' appellation, one of Germany's prime location for high quality Pinot Noir. The vines are growing on pure volcanic sediments only found in a few patches of the hillside. Grapes are mainly destemmed with 15% whole bunches used throughout the winemaking. Aging takes place in small Burgundy barrels for at least 18 months and bottled without filtration.
The Winemaker: Wasenhaus
You might think two Germans starting their own wine project would have met on home soil, but in fact they met and conjured up the notion of Wasenhaus while living on the hallowed ground of Burgundy.
Alexander Götze, a landscaper-turned-winemaker, and Christoph Wolber, who’d decided that viticulture was the most exciting form of agriculture, had each found their own way to Meursault. There, they would become united in a new mission: to see if they could create some Burgundian-inspired magic of their own, in Germany.
