André Ostertag is a revolutionary winemaker, avid environmentalist, & poetic, philosophical thinker. After studying in Burgundy, he took local innovative winemaking techniques back to his home in Alsace where he lowered yields considerably and converted to biodynamic practices.
In André's words, "…true quality is that which succeeds in surprising and moving us. It is not locked inside a formula. Its essence is subtle (subjective) and never rational. It resides in the unique, the singular, but it is ultimately connected to something more universal. A great wine is one in which quality is contained. Such a wine will necessarily be uncommon and decidedly unique because it cannot be like any other, and because of this fact it will be atypical, or only typical of itself."
On Saturday we'll have Les Vieilles Vignes de Sylvaner open from Ostertag. Additionally, we're pouring a rosé from Corsican producer Clos Marfisi and a red cabernet franc from Domaine de l'Oubliée.
