Pét Nat stands for pétillant naturel, which simply means "naturally bubbly" in German. We love Pét Nats, which is why we have decided to nail one for the first time. Although a young phenomenon, Pét Nats are actually the product of a traditional way of making sparkling wine. In a few words - the must starts fermenting in the barrel and is filled during fermentation into bottles, encapsulated and finishes fermentation in it. Since the CO2 produced during fermentation can no longer escape, carbon dioxide is naturally formed.

What sounds simple, has its pitfalls, but makes it tremendous fun, if everything works out. Pét Nats are alive and encouraging. They animate the spirits, shoot energy into your veins abruptly and dispel cloudy thoughts. At least that's the case with us.

Our first Pét Nat Riesling grapes come from the late harvest from the coolest plots on the Loiserberg.

The location

Altitude means everything at the Loiserberg. If you are at the crest of the hill, where our largest parcel is located, you’ll soon feel that the conditions here are quite different from those down below. Although our vineyard lies under the sun almost all day long, its power is relativised by the altitude and the wind that whistles through the vines.

Riesling also benefits from the climatic conditions mentioned earlier. Sun and dryness in combination with nocturnal cooling allow the grapes to ripen slowly. And finally, when it’s the right time to harvest, theres an ideal balance of precise aromas, energy and acidity structure.

Lage Loiserberg 764

The ground

The Loiserberg is Riesling territory. The geological conditions are demanding, but they’re also perfect. Riesling delivers its best results in stony and meagre areas, with most of the vines rooted in pure rock - gneiss and mica schist - which in some spots rise to the surface and are otherwise covered by a thin layer of humus.
