2019 #Wine | Schwedhelm winery from Pfaltz, Moscow

Updated: Jan 8, 2020

That was a good experience to know about Schwedhelm modern and nice small German winery from Pfalz area, and do the tasting of their Rieslings.

Schwedhelm, Germany

Stephan Schwedhelm oenologst and #winemaker was presenting the estate and told a lot of interesting facts about everything, family business history, vineyards treatment, how did he come to enology, where did he study, how does he work with vines, how do they grow the grapes with organic methods usage, how do they manage full winery business with his brother and many many other things.

It’s always great to talk with a passionate person about the things he loves, winemaking is his life and he enjoys it every day.
