Simon encounters a gender bending orange wine from the Ruth Lewandowski estate in Utah, USA. And it’s probably good for your soul too!
Simon is super impressed with Mathieu Deiss’s newish solo project Le Vignoble du Rêveur – and in particular three skin macerated white wines.
Winkler-Hermaden’s Gewürztraminer Orange crossed my horizon after it triumphed in the 2016 Pogusch Weinkost – an annual competition for Styrian wines.
In November 2014, I met five winemakers at a small tasting in San Floriano del Collio. Quietly spoken and rather shy, Mitja Miklus from the Draga estate seemed to blend into the background. But this young chap is smart – he doesn’t need to adopt the bluster of a salesman, his wines do the talking quite well by themselves.
