The Ökologisches Weingut Hubert winery is located in Ihringen of the Baden region. The owners Hubert and Gisela Lay took over the winery in 1987 from their parents, Johanna and Adolf Lay. Presently, the fourth generation of the family runs the winery. Christian, their son, attended the Technical College of Viticulture and Oenology and now works in the winery. Christian’s wife, Corrina, got elected as the Baden Wine Princess and represented Baden wines and winemakers. Since 1990, the winery adopted ecological methods, according to the Federal Association of Organic Viticulture. It protects the environment and maintains the quality of their wines.
Since 2008, the winery produces only natural wines without the addition of sulfites and sugar. As a result, the wines have a cloudy look and a unique flavor. Their vineyards are present at Fohrenberg and Winklerberg, in Ihringen on the southernmost tip of Kaiserstuhl. The land has a hot tephrit and loess soil that is perfect for the cultivation of vines. The grapes that grow here include the Pinot noir, Pinot blanc, Chardonnay, Riesling, Silvaner, Muskateller, and Cabernet Sauvignon.
The winemakers are very careful and work hard to maintain the high quality of their wines. The amount of harvest is low, and workers handpick the best grapes for further processing. They do not add any sugar to increase the alcohol content in the wines. Mash fermentation provides a beautiful color to the wines and makes it long-lasting and strong. Ageing of wine takes place in wooden barrels, and the wine is filtered before going into the bottles.
