The Oddbins Take

Alex Pfluger is as much a winemaker as he is a landlord to local insects, operating a number of 'bug hotels' throughout his 25ha vineyard. He is not however, like a despotic Monopoly player, bringing his tenants to the point of bankruptcy, then offering to let them off a portion of their debt so the agony can be continued for a couple of turns longer, until the board is inevitably flipped over in disgust. No, Alex believes that providing room and board for insects is good for everyone. Unlike so many of his peers, he negates the use of pesticides and instead shoots for greater biodiversity believing the bugs that he houses will keep away the bugs that want to damage his grapes, and everything from the local environment to his wine will benefit.

The Pfluger Cuvee Biodynamite is off-dry, very aromatic and deliciously juicy wine. Full of character with citrus, peach, herbal and mineral notes. Elegant and exotic with long finish. While Alex might not make much money from his bug hotel enterprise, if the result is wines of this quality, we have to say, in the most important ways, it is paying off!

    The New 'Kids' on The German Block - Mixed Case of 6 Wines

    £99.00
    In recent times it has been the German wine scene that seems to evolve faster than any other. Of course, they're steeped in tradition, you'll still find excellent flute shaped bottles with classic Teutonic labels and funny German terms like Anbaugebiete on them. However, with the current generation of trailblazing vintners producing exceptional, terroir driven wine, with a focus on dryness, modern styles, and with many producers working with organic, biodynamic and minimal intervention practices, German wine is now down right cool. If you're looking for the next big thing in wine, you'll probably find it in Germany and almost certainly in this case of modern German wines!
