From Vine Farmer:
In 2013, Michi Weber and his brother partnered to reclaim underutilized family vineyards in the Saar. No stranger to wine, Michi is formerly the managing director of production at the acclaimed Reichsgraf von Kesselstatt estate. Weber Brüder was founded with the goal of creating true Saar wines through farming in a more natural and sustainable way than is common throughout Germany. This way of farming helps to foster cellar practices such as spontaneous fermentation.
Decisions are made by feel but never ignorance, as Michi’s formal education and experience is always close by. Goats naturally tending the vineyards lead an intuitive yet uncommon approach that yields wine of great pleasure, authenticity, and soul. We find these wines show a denser, linear side to Riesling that is truly Saar in style. In recent years, Weber Brüder has been receiving acclaim and notoriety in Germany. We are proud to be the first to introduce the wines of Weber Brüder to the USA.
The Wine - Einklang is a modest table wine from Weber Brüder. Dry and uncomplicated, the wine still is 100% Saar valley Riesling, in a much smaller, easier style. I typically admire the wine for remaining pretty and modest and not pushing the boundaries to make the wine too "worked" in feel and something its not.
April 2020 Check In - Enjoying this wine comes down to the situation. Accompanying food where the food is the star, this wine shines in a supporting role with bright acid and an easy feel. Its more about refreshment and a pleasant nature as opposed to complexity and grand proportions. In that context, this wine was a lot of fun.
