Andi Weigand is the third generation who produces wines in Weigand. Andi’s father was the first to make wine in his family. Andi took over the winemaking duties from his father in 2015, and in 2018 decided to make the conversion to organics and natural winemaking. He says his father, unusually for the area and his generation, was very supportive of his desire to go in this direction. He now works as a team with his father, directing all the winemaking decisions. His vineyards are located on the Iphöfer Kronsberg, a slope that features Keuper soil. He uses an 80 year old basket press and very large wooden barrels. While he has modernized the winery, he has also maintained tradition: every grape is picked by hand, and every wine is carefully handcrafted, with incredible attention to detail. All wines are filled without filtration or adding any sulfur.

Description: This is a really special one - the vines are the oldest Müller-Thurgau vines in our whole region (Steigerwald). He is over 60 years old and the vines are planted very close to each other. Is something really special for us to work in this vineyard. After the harvest he is pressed on an old basket press. After the pressing he fermented in old oak barrels. Maybe one of the oldest Müller-Thurgaus you ever will taste. The 2019 harvest gave smaller yields but exceptional quality. Single vineyard Muller Thurgau, pressed directly and transferred to large German oak for 9 months before bottling. The wines are fresh, reviving and clean. No added sulphur.
