michael andres in the vineyardHis actions are rooted in feeling and sensing, in the confrontation with nature and terroir. Michael Andres experiences the vine and its environment first hand. In the vineyard, during the harvest, during the selection. His vineyards are characterized by two qualities: vitality and diversity. In the cellar he accompanies the wines in their development process. Michael takes on a rather passive role as an observer.

The winery is deliberately kept small with seven hectares, so that Andres can keep an overview alone and on his own responsibility.
