In 1986, a young winegrower from Langenlois travelled to Italy's Chianti region to learn about wine. After spending a couple months at Isole e Olena, he smuggled a small souvenir across the boarder that was entrusted to him by his "teacher" at the italian winery. That is how a few S*****vese vines found their way to the much cooler Kamptal. The variety was not allowed to be used for winemaking here. The vines were planted in a secret spot, behind an old cellar. Almost illegal. The project was extremely exciting, more vines where grafted and planted in the Thal vineyard (nobody knew), where they grow on a sandy, calcareous loess. It is here were the northern most S*****vese of Europe grows. 100% S*****vese, only vinified in the best vintages. Strictly limeted & only available upon request!
