Jochen himself always says, “…this isn’t red wine or white wine, it’s Trollinger.” Which is to say this is a singular wine: bright and brambly, with vivid crunchy red fruits, a myriad of dried spices and a fine, bouyant minerality. Beurer’s wines always have a sort of energy to them. It’s like they don’t follow the normal rules of physics; these damn wines levitate. This is especially true of this wine. Light, dry, chillable red.
Jochen Beurer is the ex-European BMX champion, bad-boy-turned-biodyanmic-farmer who crafts wines of a sort of brutal purity: crystalline, stony, unforgiving, structured, long, mind-twisting treatise of rocks and stones.
The small estate is located in Swabia (Baden-Württemberg), at the farthest southern end of Germany. The Beurer family has farmed the land in Kernen, just outside of Stuttgart, for generations. In 1997, Jochen, his wife Marion, and father Sigfried set out on their own, making and bottling the wine for themselves. For the first two years, the winery literally was a garage. In 2003, Jochen started experimenting with organic viticulture, finally converting fully to biodynamics (Demeter certified). In the cellar, the wines undergo natural and spontaneous fermentation, usually including malolactic. The wines are not rushed to bottle, which is apparent by the release of several vintages at once. A vigneron of real consequence, we are thrilled to represent Jochen Beurer.
