Does wine improve when it is aged in the gentle swell of the waves of Lake Zurich? This was the question that Robert and Chantal Irsslinger from the winery of the same name on Lake Zurich asked themselves.

Is it possible to distinguish it from a wine that has matured in the cellar?

The Johanniter grapes for the Wellentänzer – or “wave dancer” – wine from Lake Zurich are harvested and processed by hand. After it has fermented naturally, the wine is divided in half: one half is sealed in a specially constructed buoy, which then drifts in the lake, while the second half is processed and stored in the conventional way to produce a “twin” version, which serves as a reference when subsequently comparing the two wines. #visitzurich
