Weingut Klenk is a family run winery that's been operating since 1612 in the village of Eckelsheim, Rheinhessen.
Armin Klenk has taken over the winery from his father Fritz and is farming in total around 40 hectares of vines.
Since 2016, Armin's been converting 5 hectares using organic farming methods. He's not certified organic, but the vines and soil are treated with the love and care mother nature intended.
Armin is working low intervention in the cellar and since 2021 there were no added sulfites to his organically farmed wines. The older vintages have a small amount of sulfites added for stabilisation. No filtration or fining.
Armin decided in 2021 to no longer bottle and label his wine and to sell most of it to larger cooperatives. That's where our new project 'Cuve Kollektiv' comes in. We buy the wine that's from his organically farmed vineyards and label it under a kollektiv project.
This is a project that plans to grow together over the years. We will work closely with Armin Klenk to create wines that we think the consumer desires.
