Tasting Notes

Founded in 1935, the estate grows Pinot Noir vines on a steep, south-facing slope to get the best sun exposure. Tuniberg is a subregion of Baden with limestone soils. Herbal, spicy, classic Pinot Noir. Pair this with duck breast with orange sauce to enjoy the sweet and spicy contrast.

Staff Pick Notes

SHPAYT-bur-GUHN-der

Baden is the ancestral home of Spätburgunder in Germany. First documented in 884, brought from Burgundy by the great-grandchild of Charlemagne, Charles III.

Pinot Noirs originating from Baden have a unique iron-laden, smoky quality, which seals the deal for me!
