About Family Reunion
2016 has been a vintage to remember for Stephanie and Eduard. Spring brought them heavy frosts and hailstorms happened during the summer. Autumn by contrast was peaceful, forgiving, and warm, and in the end, delivered them tiny amounts but amazing qualities of grapes. To let their wines take it all in and tell the story of the year through their complex characters, they decided to let their family members united, to go for a family reunion. Cumulative energy-focused strength and collective finesse. The Spirit of youth and the wisdom of maturity united. This unique bottling tells the story of a year in the vineyards.
