Vinum magazine July/August 2020 Edition
For the guide "The Route 66 of the best organic wines", the 66 most successful wines that best represent the Swiss organic wine scene were selected after a comprehensive tasting.
Shot No 03 is one of them!
Here the original tasting note from the magazine:
Agrumes, some tangerine peel and mineral notes on the nose. A lot of sweet extract on the palate, a little expansive, with present lemon zest. Complex spicy notes and some pastry. An exciting companion to hot Sri Lanka curry, which balances the spiciness. 2020 to 2022 24 francs | www.shot-vin.ch"
With a little delay our slate stone pile with integrated nesting place for the hoopoe stands now! Also a few old vines were inserted.
The first lizards have already taken it and we hope that other animals will also feel comfortable in it.

What a success!
In the competition "Schweizer Bioweinpreis 2019" we submitted our Shot No 03 and reached the 2nd place in the category "PIWI" white wine.
The award ceremony followed by a public tasting in the Bierhübeli Bern was a complete success and our third vintage was also very well liked by the public.
JUNE 2019 - FIRST APPEARANCE OF THE NEW BUSHES
Young, fragile but still present are the new bushes to promote biodiversity! Some are thriving wonderfully, others are still struggling. We are very curious to see how they will develop and how the local fauna will benefit.
NEWS FROM THE VINEYARD - MARCH 2019
While the vineyard was in the winter break, we were able to track down a wonderful, ecologically valuable project. In cooperation with the "Schweizerische Vogelwarte Sempach" several native bushes were planted in march in the open areas between our vines.
The goal is very clear: Biodiversity!
The new richer structure will provide new habitats for many bird species. In a second step, so-called small structures will be constructed, in our case a stone wall from the existing slate rock. A nesting aid for the hoopoe will be integrated to promote the local population. This wall also offers valuable habitat for ermine, wild bees, butterflies, lizards, smooth snake etc..
We are very happy that this project has been realized with us and of course we are looking forward to a revitalization and enrichment of our parcel.
Pictures will follow soon....
