Christian Binner has been making wines for many years in the vineyard that his family has owned and run ever since 1770. The Binner family estate is entirely a family-run business with Joseph Binner, the father of Christian and his wife Monique Binner and Beatrice Cotter-Binner, Christian’s sister are all involved. The forest that surrounds this vineyard provides a certain coolness of temperature in this vineyard. The soil here is gneiss; this vineyard is located on terraced slopes facing directly south, a fact that leads to excellent maturity of the grapes. The altitude of plantation of these Pinot Noir vines is between 320 and 350 metres. In Hubert and Christian Engel’s vineyard the farming is organic. Grapes are hand harvested with a first triage in the vines and second on the sorting table in the winery. One third of the grapes are fermented with the stems for about 10 days and two thirds are destemmed and fermented with the skins on for about 15 days. Everything is fermented with indigenous yeast and zero sulfur, and a very small amount of pumping over is performed. Elevage on the lees for one year and bottled with zero addition of sulfur. Unfined and unfiltered.
