Organic and Biodynamic Farming Practices
Burgunder SA is a blend of Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Chardonnay from 5 vintages (2010-2014). The grapes from 20-40 year old vines were grown on sandstone, gravel and calcareous marl soils. Aromas of caramelized grilled orange with fresh grated ginger. Drinks beautifully like honeyed ginger lemon tea. Leaves your mouth watering with a savory herbal finish. Easy drinking, but a complex white wine that deserves contemplation.

He farms his 23.5 acre vineyard with extreme slopes and terraces following biodynamic principles, and received Demeter certification in 2016.
