OUR SECOND VINTAGE OF PROJECT “WURZELWERK” AVAILABLE FROM SEPTEMBER 2019
Since 2016 we are part of the grape exchange project “Wurzelwerk”: during harvest the estates Jurtschitsch, Kamptal in Lower Austria, Gunderloch, Rheinhessen, and Georg Breuer provide one another with grapes from one of their top sites and start exploring the terroir: how does a vineyard express itself in a foreign cellar? What gives the tone?
The first vintage of the project “Wurzelwerk” that was developed in team with Georg Breuer is now available and can be purchased in our vinotheque as well as over the homepage of Wurzelwerk.
Further information on the project “Wurzelwerk” can be found on www.wurzelwerk.org .
RELEASE 2017 BERG SCHLOSSBERG – ARTIST LABEL BY FRIEDRICH GOBBESSO
We are delighted to announce that Berlin artist Friedrich Gobbesso is the designer behind the label of our 2017 Berg Schlossberg.
Born in 1980, Gobbesso studied sculpture at the Weißensee Kunsthochschule Berlin. He achieved his master degree as a student of Tristan Pranyko (Experimental Design) and has shown his work in various exhibitions.
In addition to sculptures, Friedrich Gobbesso’s artistic work includes installations, prints and photography – the diversity of these fields mirrors Gobbesso’s universal creative approach. The playful experiment and its incalculable result, curiosity with regard to the detail and the visualisation of hidden aesthetics form the heart of Friedrich Gobbesso’s artistic work. In the visual world, that Gobbesso discovers for the viewer, well-known certainties fall apart – what seemed to be obvious at the beginning, suddenly becomes enigmatic.
In his Moiré-Series Friedrich Gobbesso provokes seemingly monotone grid patterns into an artistic dialogue within the conflicting fields of order and coincidence. Diverse layers of rigid patterns are set on top of each other and in their interplay they form rhythmic (meta-)structures that are later fixed as photograms on baryta paper. Considered as an error in usual printing processes, the moiré effect is artistically cultivated and challenges the eye – the closer one examines the image, the more cryptic it appears.
The label of the 2017 Berg Schlossberg shows the described moiré effect: the neatly arranged pattern of vineyard rows intertwine in the moiré – the supposedly simple display of lines meanders between flat imagery and physically moved scenic values. Visual irritations emerge even before one has enjoyed a sip of that exquisite Riesling.
Wine description: Immense power and finesse come together. Salty and juicy at the same time. A lot of mineral spiciness. Delicate scent of stone fruits and orange skin. A Riesling with elegant style and fine tannins. Very long lasting and with a monumental depth.
Low yields of 18hl/hectare.
