VDP: What is so special about your winery?

Nicole Roth: Organic viticulture since 1974! Our wines are vinified in concrete eggs and oak barrels made from local Wiesenbronn oak. We produce four different sparkling wines and we own the monopole vineyard Heller Berg.

 

VDP: What is your winery philosophy?

Nicole Roth: We are one of Germany’s absolute pioneers in organic viticulture. The decision to work exclusively according to organic regulations was made in 1974. Possible economic advantages of organic viticulture were not an issue at that time. After more than 40 years of managing our winery sustainably, the outstanding quality of the wines and our success have proven our decision correct. Thinking and handling ecologically are firmly anchored in everything we do and are a matter of course for us.

VDP: For what wine style do you strive?

Nicole Roth: Authentic, dry, unique. Our favourite grape varieties are Silvaner and Blaufränkisch.

 

“WE LIKE AUTHENTIC, DRY AND UNIQUE WINES.”

VDP: Which of your wines would you recommend to someone who does not yet know your winery – as an introduction, so to speak?

Nicole Roth: Silvaner VDP.ORTSWEIN and SPÄTBURGUNDER (Pinot Noir) VDP.ORTSWEIN

VDP: Of which wine are you particularly proud?

Nicole Roth: Of the 2015 VDP.ERSTE LAGE® Wiesenbronner Heller Berg Blaufränkisch G dry.

VDP: Why did you become a vintner?

Nicole Roth: As the second born daughter, whose big sister decided to do something else, it became clear relatively quickly, “Well, then ‘Klee’ (me) will do it”. That was the best decision my sister ever made for me.

VDP: Do you have role models, mentors?

Nicole Roth: My father, Gerhard Roth.

VDP: What are your next goals?

Nicole Roth: Reducing the number of grape varieties, redesigning the vinotheque and event room, and expanding sparkling wine production.

 

VDP: How do you combine tradition and innovation?

Nicole Roth: Doing as little ‘doctoring around’ with wine as possible, testing new styles of maturation – for example in concrete eggs or granite barrels. Of course, we will not give up our consistent tradition of organic viticulture since 1974.

VDP: Why should people visit your winery?

Nicole Roth: You can stay in a great hotel in Wiesenbronn: www.rothweinhotel.de. There is also the wine art trail, the dream trails, and the Schwanberg for hiking. Würzburg, Bamberg,  and Nuremberg are close excursion destinations.
