Following the Mann family tree, one can see that the passion for wine goes back to 1699 when they settled in Eckelsheim to build a farm and plant vines. After completing his degree in economics, Andi (Andreas) Mann realized that his desire to take over the family business was stronger than the idea of pursuing a career in business management. So he went to Geisenheim to study winemaking, and had fun experimenting with the vines grown on the family estate. A call to nature that promises to upset tradition!
Inspired by the work of Domaine de Saint Pierre, Stefan Vetter and Werlitsch, Andi has a very clear idea of the style of wine he wants to produce. Natural wines that are full of energy. His wish is to maximize the biodiversity of the soils by taking into account the microbiology as a whole.
By observing the vineyard carefully, one can understand its needs. By maintaining favorable conditions, one can obtain a “self-confident” wine that bears witness to its terroir in complete freedom. The common denominator is the biodiversity of the soils and the overall environment of the vineyard. Of the 11 hectares of vineyards (all organically grown), 5 are now reserved for the production of natural cuvées which continue to surprise us year after year.
