VDP: What is so special about your winery?
Martin Schwab: We are very hospitable: We offer all-round service with overnight accommodation on the winery. You can also visit our "Kleinkunstauslese", which we have been organising for 20 years - with high quality on stage and in the wine glass. Our "Gläserne Kellerwirtschaft" gives you an insight into the barrique barrel cellar from the winery's yard. A special feature is also our terroir, which is characterised by the transition from red sandstone to shell limestone.
VDP: What is your winery philosophy?
Martin Schwab: Passion and innovation for wines with soul.
VDP: Which wine style do you strive for?
Martin Schwab: We favour fruity, dry, terroir-influenced wines.
VDP: Which of your wines would you recommend to someone who doesn't know your winery - as an introduction, so to speak?
Martin Schwab: "Enjoy White" Cuvée, created by me. Fresh, fruity, uncomplicated and yet full of character for many drinking opportunities.
VDP: Which wine are you particularly proud of?
Martin Schwab: The top wines of the Silvaner grape variety VDP.ERSTE LAGE® and the VDP.GROSSEN GEWÄCHSE®.
VDP: Why did you become a winemaker?
Martin Schwab: I took over the traditional winery from my parents - and also their passion for top wines.
VDP: Do you have role models?
Martin Schwab: The Gross winery in southern Styria.
VDP: What are your next goals?
Martin Schwab: We will intensify our efforts in near-natural viticulture.
VDP: Hold on to traditions, and if so, which ones?
Martin Schwab: We want to remain a regional specialist for Thüngersheim wines.
VDP: Why should we still visit your winery?
Martin Schwab: The historic WeinKulturGaden Thüngersheim should not be missed. The Höhfeldplatte with the orchid reserve is always worth a walk - and of course the Terroir F Thüngersheim.
