Neiss Pinot Grigio 2017 (12 x 750mL) Pfalz, Germany

Located in the commune of Kindenheim, Weingut Neiss holds 17 hectares with accross the following sites: Burgweg, Frafenstuck, Vogelsang in the winegrowing region of Pfalz (or Palatinate), Heiligenkirche, Schlossberg and Sonnenberg.

In 1959, Ludi Neiss and his wife Christine were farmers with a winery. In the 1970's, they converted all of their holdings to viticulture, and in 1997, their son Axel Neiss took over. A fifth-generation winemaker, Axel modernized the family's wine estate. The existing wines were replaced by classical grape varieties and the estate was increased in size to incorporate some of the best sites in the region. Redeveloping the labels and the image of the estate, Axel changed the work methods in both the vineyards and cellars.

In this northern, cool-climate region, vines grow deep roots in mineral-rich soils, with large amounts of chalk. Half of the family's vineyards are planted with white variteals and the other half with red. Axel Neiss' course of action is driven by his pursuit of perfection. Both in the vineyard and in the cellar, he utilizes the sustainable, integrated practices.
