Grape Variety: Pinot noir
Pinot noir vines planted in 1969 and 1971 are growing on two of the best plots in Tschäpperli. The natural harvest quantity of these very old vines goes from 550 to 600gr/sqm. Reduced production of grapes supports the high quality of our Hommage. These grapes are the foundation for our Hommage. The traditional pulp fermentation initiates in a wooden vat, then Hommage matures 12 to 14 months in a new as well as one and two-year old barriques made of Frech, Swiss and Tschäpperli oak.
