Christian Steitz is the most precise wine maker I know.  I first tasted his Spatburgunder (the German name for Pinot Noir) in 2011 during a wine tasting tour of Germany.  I knew immediately I had to import his wines into the UK and almost missed my flight home to secure the deal. When everyone back home saw how excited I was about my new friends they thought perhaps I had been bribed with too much alcohol. Spatburgunder remains one of the most popular wines amongst our customers to this day – end of story!

    This is an amazing pinot noir. Such interesting flavours and has become one of my favourite pinots now! My first Pinot from Germany too...they know how to do it.
