We do our utmost to let nature do the talking. Unpretentious quality is the result. The Wedderwill estate takes its name from the Old German, meaning the ‘will of the weather’. And few estates work so closely with Mother Nature. Situated on the Schapenberg, the farm’s south-facing vineyards yield to the passing winds, embrace the sun, and survive each turbulent storm. The result is wines of character and quality – to be savoured, whatever the weather.
Those who work at Wedderwill believe they have a responsibility to the land in their care. Wind, soil, rain, microbes, heat, worms, sunshine, fungi, air, plants – all work together to create spectacular wines. It makes sense, then, not to work against these natural processes by introducing damaging toxins, or unsustainable practices. The environment is the terroir.
