Piwi Kollektiv

Eichstetten • Germany

Martin Schmidt, owner of the Kiefer and Schmidt wineries in Eichstetten, and Philipp Rottmann founded the Piwi Kollektiv to support smaller wineries in converting to organic viticulture.

The collective pursues a holistic concept. Winegrowers are advised on restructuring their vineyards with the aim of increasing the proportion of fungus-resistant grape varieties (in Germany known as Piwis), in the vineyards. The aim is to save 80 per cent of the pesticides used in conventional viticulture in this way.

Because the winegrowers' cooperatives have so far only taken very limited quantities of grapes from fungus-resistant varieties, the Piwi Kollektiv is also stepping in here.

The focus is on the production of Crémants, but the range also includes a Secco and a non-alcoholic sparkling wine. This reflects the potential of high-quality, fungus-resistant grape varieties for sparkling wine production in a special way.

The rating of the wine reflects the mean value from a tasting by our jury.
The wine was evaluated in a blind tasting.
The wine was tasted as a barrel sample or before an official test number (Amtliche Prüfungsnummer or Staatliche Prüfnummer) was issued.
The wine exhibited a sensory abnormality during our tasting. This does not necessarily have to be a qualitative defect or a wine fault. In the case of a qualitative impairment, a devaluation or rejection was made depending on the type and severity of the defect or wine fault.
