2naturkinder wines from Bavaria region in Germany
2naturkinder is a low-intervention winery run by Germans Michael Voelker & Melanie Drese, a married couple who spent their previous life doing various careers with stints in London & New York.
From a side-project to full time winemaker
The son of a Bavarian winemaker (who is actually is on the control board of the local wine appellation to ensure quality remains high), Michael returned to Germany with his wife Melanie to take over his vineyard and begin making natural wines together. They did this first as a small side project for the winery, but are now more committed and using the majority of the whole vineyard, producing an annual 40,000 bottles a year through their 6 hectare plot.
Best wines from 2naturkinder
2naturkinder produce two types of wine: Their ‘2Naturkinder’ range with no added sulphur and a less raw, ‘Vater & Sohn’ range, which uses purchased grapes from other vineyards and are made slightly filtered, alongside a light sulphur addition. This range is in honour of the traditional wines Michael Voelker’s father used to make before the 2Naturkinder style came about.
