Wild Wines Workshop

Natural, organic and biodynamic wines are on the rise! There’s a growing movement of producers and wine lovers around the world who are advocating for a return to farming and the vineyard, away from much of the processing and manipulation of “modern” winemaking.

So, what does it mean for a wine to be natural, organic or biodynamic? More importantly, what does it taste like? Take a walk on the wild side and decide for yourself!

Workshop led by Jenny Gammon, Bishop’s Cellar Marketing & Events Manager and CAPS-Certified Sommelier. Featured wines are below:

Gut Oggau Theodora

Gut Oggau is a biodynamic wine estate in Oggau, Burgenland, Austria owned and operated by Eduard Tscheppe and Stephanie Tscheppe-Eselböck. Edward grew up making wine with his father and Stephanie’s family have a Michelin star restaurant. In 2007 the couple focused their energies into reviving a dilapidated winery, including a 200 year old screw press and abandoned vineyards. Their approach was to farm according to organic and biodynamic principles from the beginning and the results are impressive and their wines have garnered a cult-like following amongst natural wine lovers worldwide.

There are many producers in this area growing organic and practicing biodynamics in the vineyard and winery including Château de la Selve. The vineyards are situated on the banks of the Chassezac river, the most important tributary of the Ardèche. The soil consists of very chalky clay. In 1990, Chàteau de la Selve was bought by Jean-Régis and Magdeleine Chazollon. As their son Benoît took over the winemaking in 2002 at which time, the vineyard also turned biodynamic. Beautifully clean and pure wines are being produced at the domaine, that celebrate the unique terroir of the region.
