Since the second lockdown has hit Austria, I’ve been staying in Baden Württemberg again, till the Austrian gastronomy is allowed to serve guests again. But that also means, that I’ve had the great fortune to personally visit another iconic producer of the Rems Valley: Rainer Schnaitmann. So I highly recommend to check out our conversation in its entirety on the Wine Ghosts Youtube channel. Rainer is located in Fellbach, on the Eastern side of the Rems Valley, closer to Stuttgart, thereby cultivates his vineyards organically under slightly warmer climatic conditions than my previous guests from the valley. Above all, Rainer is most famous for his Lembergers and Spätburgunders, that are dreamy juices with freshness, playfulness, grace and a hint of “dirtiness”. Since we’ve talked for about two hours at his wine castle, I’ve decided to cover the reds in this first part, while the whites in another episode. However, this episode features the terroir in great detail, the natural winemaking approach behind the Schnaitmann wines, our tasting notes, and much more. Enjoy.
