Volcker Raumland makes sekt (sparkling wine) for dozens of top German estates, including almost ALL of our other growers. He is a master craftsman who creates a modest 100,000 bottles of methode champenois sparkling wines each year. The vineyards and wines are certified organic by the E.U. and Eco-Vin in Germany. All wines are hand-harvested from limestone-based soils, pressed in whole clusters, fermented with Epernay yeasts, given a low dosage of 6-8g, cellared from 12 months to 12 years depending on the cuvée, and always freshly disgorged for purchase. These are simply the best, most conscientiously made sekts in Germany.
