Notes from the Importer: Andreas Durst is a bohemian / artist / trickster / philosopher who feels most comfortable well outside of any sort of established norm.

Andreas Durst is a pretty well known photographer – this is how he makes most of his money as he’s working less than a hectare in TOTAL.

Andreas moved to a forgotten part of the Pfalz, on the northern border with the Rheinhessen a few decades ago, to get closer to his true love, wine. This region, very literally, has no identity. There aren’t even preconceptions.

Even in the twisted little world of small-scale winemaking, Andreas pushes the limits. As stated above, he farms less than a hectare, making, in total each year, a ceramic tank or two of Sylvaner, a barrel of Portugieser (among the greatest made in Germany if not the absolute greatest) and a few barrels of Pinot Noir. Everything is made in an old barn behind his house and it’s a few hundred cases, total.
