“Facing the highest summits of the Alps, the steep slopes of the Mythopia vineyard have become a paradise, home to fragrant flowers, fruit trees, rare birds and more than 60 species of butterflies. It’s a vineyard exuding biodiversity where the ecosystem is sustained by a symbiotic network of uncountable species. The vineyard is no longer a hostile monoculture with naked soil but a beautiful natural system designed to produce grapes expressing the subtleties of its terroir. The soil is activated by accompanying plants and the air is full of the music of bumblebees and the perfume of wild blossoms. The grapes we harvest in Mythopia do not need any forcing interference with oenological substances. Our wines are made from grapes and air, nothing more.” - Hans Peter-Schmidt (Winemaker)
Old-vine Sylvaner on calcareous-schist soil. Grapes are hand-picked on the last day of harvest. The wine is macerated as whole bunches for 6 months in tanks, then gently pressed and aged for 4-5 years in neutral oak barrels. No added sulfites, no fining, no filtration.
