Located in the Kaiserstuhl area of Baden, the estate sits on top of an extinguished volcano in Germany’s most sun-drenched and southernmost region. While the family’s viticultural roots reach back to the 18th century, the name Salwey didn’t join the family-operated winery until three generations ago. Heinrich Nepomuk Steiert laid the foundation for the winery as early as the 1920s, joining the Association of German Natural Wine Auctions – the forerunner of today’s VDP. His daughter Anneliese married Benno Salwey in 1940, and together they ran the farm with a mixed focus on agriculture and viticulture. Their son, Wolf-Dietrich Salwey, took over in 1985, converting the family business to focus exclusively on wine and further developing the reputation of the Salwey estate for quality wines. His passion was Pinot Noir, and he was an active supporter of the founding of the VDP Baden, leading Weingut Salwey to become the first Baden member of the VDP.
Salwey's pinot noir rosé is a great example of a dry rosé.
Salwey Pinot Noir Rosé only gets its delicate salmon color from the brief skin contact during pressing. It is deliberately fresh and light and represents a very classy, elegant rosé style with a moderate alcohol content and an invigorating acid structure. A Rosé that convinces with the unaffected, natural fruit from the Pinot Noir grape.
