About Andi Weigand MTH
Andi Weigand MTH is an ode to the power of old vines and underdog varieties! Smoky, peachy, crisp, zesty, hard to stop sipping on, and exploring all these layers of flavor. Muller Thurgau is a traditional Central-European grape that can over-produce wildly when in greedy hands, but that’s definitely not the case with Andi and their old family vineyards here. In Andi’s own words: “Maybe the oldest Müller-Thurgau you can drink – 60 years old vines. Something really special for us! MTH is at its best. Beautiful vineyard with an impressively high density of plantation, 10.000 vines/hectare.”
About Andi Weigand
Andi Weigand was introduced to us by way of the amazing Franken natural winemakers, 2Naturkinder. Andi’s father was the first to make wine in his family. Andi took over the winemaking duties from his dad 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. He makes all his wines without the use of fining or filtration, and never adds any sulfur.
