Tasting Notes: Golden color, almost amber. Distinct smoky and dried fruit hints, apricot, fig and dates with a hint of almond. Savory and fresh in the mouth, with an almost oily fullness and a salty finish.
Tasting Notes: Only one day of maceration means this wine is somewhere between a white and orange wine. Intense aromas of hay, apricots, sea spray, honey and ginger. On the palate it is juicy, fresh and with a salty finish.
Tasting Notes: The perfect wine for lazy weekend afternoons. Franz & Christine wanted to make a “house wine” that involved all different vineyards and varieties that they farm. This includes the recently (2015) planted hybrid, disease resistant varieties such as Muscaris, Souvignier Gris, Bronner and a Swiss clone of Cabernet. Catsilver refers to the shining silica stones that are found throughout their vineyards. All the white grapes undergo a maceration on the skins and the red grapes are directly pressed, before all being aged in used oak barrels for eight months.
Tasting Notes: Needs time to breathe as it is quite reductive, then it shows notes of citrus, apricot, cut grass, petrichor and a touch of butter. On the palate it is full of energy, with a zingy acidity and strong minerality, balanced out by a light creaminess.
Tasting Notes: Lobster pink with beautiful opalescence. Yeast deposit clearly visible at the bottom of the bottle. The nose opens with hints of yeast and bakery and then opens up to fruity aromas of cherry, wild strawberries, white currants and rose petals, and closes with a mineral note. The taste is dry with a very delicate but persistent bubble, fresh and savoury with good persistence.
Tasting Notes: Rosé; fine and persistent froth. The nose is expressed with hints of apricot, raspberry and apple and notes of pastry and yeast. On the palate it is crisp, pleasingly sapid and well balanced.

Tasting Notes: Golden yellow color with greenish and amber reflections, the nose hints of pear cider, the palate is quite dry, beautiful acidic structure, scents of herbs, medium-long finish, but powerful.
Tasting Notes: Domaine Ad Vinum challenges the boundaries of traditional winemaking. Here, he blends a 5-day maceration of Grenache Noir with direct press Ugni Blanc, only to then mix that with Gewürztraminer lees for extra aromatic power. The result is a light red wine, that's almost a rosé. Sounds complicated but tastes heavenly glouglou. Smells of candy and undergrowth, tastes of summer.
