Deinhard with a vengeance. Germany's answer to Pinot Grigio. Dry and modern.
Deinhard with a vengeance. Dr Deinhard is not the latest instalment of the Bruce Willis film franchise, it is the sister winery from the lovely guys behind Von Winning. And although Grauer Burgunder may sound a little scary - come on be honest, how many of you just shouted that in an aggressive German accent in your head? - it is just the German name for Pinot Gris, also known as Pinot Grigio in its crisper Italian form.
Humble heroes. From their intriguing (and award-winning) Rieslings to their groundbreaking Pinot Noirs, we love every wine and winemaker from this family-run estate. Founded in 1849 by Dr. Deinhard, developed by his son-in-law Leopold von Winning in 1907, the estate was revived in 2007 by Achim Niederberger, together with the Bassermann-Jordan and von Buhl properties. Tragically Herr Niederberger died in 2013, and his wife Jana now steers the ship. No herbicides, no synthetic fertilisers, no copper, no filtering and no fining. Every bottle is a winner.
