Quick facts:

  • The name (Tröpfltalhof) means house (hof) of the dripping valley (Tröpfltal).
  • Andreas considers Demeter certification to be a starting point, not a goal–their approach is far more rigorous than the minimum standards.
  • “I want a vibrant wine of energy, authentic and vital. To do this we have to allow nature to fully express itself and to tell its story and its present. Both in the vineyard and in the cellar. I want to do something for nature, not against it!” – Andreas Dichristin
