Les Vins Pirouettes is a project launched by Christian Binner, that brings affordable natural wines to the table, and at the same time helps organic and biodynamic grape growers in Alsace move away from selling their grapes to cooperatives towards making and bottling natural wines. Each cuvée is made at a young grower’s winery, where they supply the grapes and Christian supplies his 20 years of expertise in making natural wine in Alsace. Each cuvée features the name of the grower on the bottle.
Vinification Method: Grapes are hand harvested with a first triage in the vines and second on the sorting table in the winery. One third of the grapes are fermented with the stems for about 10 days and two thirds are destemmed and fermented with the skins on for about 15 days. Everything is fermented with indigenous yeast and zero sulfur, and a very small amount of pumping over is performed. Elevage on the lees for one year and bottled unfined and unfiltered, with zero addition of sulfur.
