The vineyard in summer The vineyard in winter
More than 400 million years ago, in the Devon era, Europe was still located south of the equator. In riverbanks, sediments from tropical soil accumulated and mingled with alluvial deposit from the seas. Fine clays and sand, mussels, coral reefs… Through the collision with the continent Gondwana, the silt condensed into slate. Today it towers as a steep rock out of the Mosel valley. What an astonishing achievement of our ancestors to break the stones in hard manual work, to erect walls and to create terraces. A unique cultural landscape. The vines, basically as a medium, sublimate the rocky soil into the glass and revive the primordial ocean as a taste.
