Why this name?
Rarely speaks a name so clearly. The stream trickles only, most of the water that inevitably comes down from the mountain, goes on top of the ground. Here the stream is only a trickle, if not entirely absent, in dry, hot summer weeks.
I try around a lot, know my way. My dream is to produce a wine from untreated grapes, even without biological pesticides. I'm working patiently. Part of the vineyard I have reserved for testing.
Rhythm is power: as the sun purports the annual rhythm, as well my vines get teas and biodynamic preparations in regular intervals. If I have the feeling that the vines need additional support, I will strengthen them even with homeopathic treatments.
It is my intention to develop my feeling for nature. This works best if I border all the treatments through the vineyards, spreading with the knapsack sprayer.
For 25 years, my attempts have been running, as a mountain guide I have a long
breath. First, I took care of the ground vegetation.
At a time when few did, I let it flourish between the rows of vines. Colorful mixed sown cover crop bloomers have helped.
After a few summers it has settled to normal growth, as usual on a healthy lawn and harmonized soil. It blooms and grows, and in between is a whole universe of insects feels comfortable.
I am being consistent and do much by hand, have only a few machines.
This is only possible if you can help as a family together.
Wine from Tröpfltalhof is still a insider tip, it does not exist on every corner.
But from the winery you can buy wine at almost any time.
