Sustainable Wine from Mario Zelt Germany

„Most of all, we were convinced by the level of detail of the FAIR’N GREEN standard, that encompasses holistic environmental criteria, economic as well as social criteria. In cooperation with FAIR’N GREEN we strive for optimising our vineyard in these segments in the next few years”

Weingut Ernst und Mario Zelt    

Wine grower Mario Zelt                                         The vineyard

Since the mid- 1990s Mario Zelt has been running the vineyard with the motivation to produce high quality wine. For increasing the level of quality, both classically domestic as well as international grapes are cultivated in the vineyards. His two-year apprenticeship to become a wine grower, studies in oenology, as well as various internships abroad, further motivated him to improve the quality of his wines, for instance by exclusively harvesting manually. The wines of the vineyards Mario Zelt are based on a combination of tradition and modern practice. It is the goal of the young wine grower, who was nominated in 2003 for the VDP Palatinate Superior Talents, to produce wines that reflect the character of the sites.
