3 x Wild Growth Cabernet Blanc & Sauvignac organic dry white wine 2021, PDO Mosel (0.75l, glass bottle with Diam cork)
Organic farming certified by the European Organic Farming label since 2011
Organic vineyard on steep, rocky slopes supported by primitive masonry, no synthetic pesticides or artificial fertilisers; instead stable manure and traditional means of farming are used
The Sauvignac and Cabernet Blanc grape varieties have been hybridised from wild varieties of vines, and are therefore more resistant to fungal diseases, giving our summer wines their "wild" name
The rosé has a strong rosé colour, between onion peel and pale red. It has a deep scent of red berries and aromatic woodland air. Pleasantly mild on the palate with a soft mouthfeel and a hint of tannins, the red berries are also present in the taste
The Wild Growth white wine is fragrant and floral in its bouquet, with a hint of banana; soft mouthfeel and dry, with green-spicy aromas; surprising elements of nettle, and there is also a hint of passion fruit
The grapes of this wine, which is atypically dry for the Mosel, are harvested by hand at full ripeness and when they are in perfect health. They are then vinified; the wine is coarsely filtered only once, and apart from slight sulphurisation, does not undergo any treatment
The rosé goes well with light summer cuisine and grilled food, as well as with pizza and pasta; we recommend the white wine with crackers or cheese; fish, white meat and intensive vegetables; or, of course, solo
Storage: you can enjoy these wines immediately, but can also store them for 1–3 years

Mona Bastgen
Dear CrowdFarmers! I’m Mona Bastgen the owner of Weingut Bastgen and my heart beats for viticulture and winemaking. It all started in 1993 when me and my husband Armin took over the vineyards from my parents. I'm one of eight siblings and always felt at home in nature. Even after my studies in the wine school of Geisenheim and an internship in Australia it was clear for me that I have found my place in the steep vineyards of the Mosel valley. For Armin and I wine is not only a beverage of taste and pleasure but a huge part of our life. Wine to us represents origin and utopia at the same time. We both grew up with it, and learned manual labor from our parents. Diligence and stamina are only two of the virtues needed for this type of work. Apart from hard work and effort, a clear vision of a wine is needed. We need a map of where we want to go. We had to drink many hundred bottles of wine until we developed our own understanding of quality. Even if we have devastating weather sometimes or it seems like work in the vineyard is a never ending struggle we keep on going. What drives us is the utopia of authentic wine. From this idea we draw the energy to wrestle with the steep slopes. We are passionate winemakers at home in the vineyards under the open sky. We see ourselves as vintners that produce something where all our energy, ideas and experience flow into. We stand behind our wines. What we bottle has to be in line with our ideals and tastes. On the other hand, we live from the sales of our wine. CrowdFarming is a great chance for us to focus on what matters to us. We can directly sell to you and avoid intermediaries and marketing. This way we have more time to do work in the vineyard and make excellent wines. You as a CrowdFarmer will get a responsibly farmed, regional and authentic product for a great price. You are more than welcome to come and visit our winery and see for yourself.

There are only a few places in the world of wine that come close to the magical Mosel Valley. The area around Bernkastel-Kues with its impressive steep vineyards is the home of Riesling vines with grapes absorbing the unique slate minerality of the soil. Cultivating vines here demands respect of nature but also enough passion to fight for the yield. Everything is hard-earned in the steep slope vineyards. My husband and I work in the vineyards daily, we love tending to our vines manually with the following mantra in mind: "4 hands – thousands of vines" We are a small family business. The winery has been in the hands of the family since the 1850’s. It saw times of glory and decay. For my parents the winery was a mere side business with a total area of 2ha. The large family, my mum had 10 children, took care of all the work. They sold their wines in bulk and kept some of it for family consumption. We took over the vineyards in 1993 and started all over again building a new cellar and slowly investing in equipment and vineyards. Because of the daily manual labor we have a real closeness to the vines and vineyards. For us it is a biosphere – not only a place of production. Herbs are planted, the soil is filled with life. We reject systemic plant protection, herbicides and artificial fertilizer. Instead, we promote the health of our soils and vines with natural, tried and tested means. We only use copper, sulfate and organic fertilizer. Unwanted weeds are removed by hand. It was a logical step that we obtained the organic certification in 2011. We taste wines from all around the world, discuss wine styles and do deep dives into different regions. What drives us is the utopia of authentic wine. From this idea we draw the energy to wrestle with the steep slopes. Organic viticulture is not only sustainable for the vineyard life but also a guarantor for wine quality. We are convinced: Only grapes that have been naturally farmed can be made into the wines that we imagine. Only then the whole vineyard, the terroir can be experienced in the glass. Chemicals and heavy machinery are the helpers of mass and mediocrity and therefore the wrong companions. In our small winery both of us do all the work: from planting young vines, tending to vineyards, processing grapes, vinification and finally bottling. Every now and then an intern looks over our shoulders; and sure, in the harvest season we need more hands, every help is welcome. Every year we are supported by friends, family, neighbors and fit retirees from neighboring villages. For two years now our total energy consumption is covered by solar panels on the roof of our winery. All residues like yeasts and pressed out grape skins are composted and re-enter the cycle in the vineyard as fertilizer. We use rainwater to cover our water needs for spraying and cleaning of equipment during the vinification process. These are all holistic farming concepts that used to be widely spread in the past. Nowadays sheer size, machines, chemicals and acreage-based subventions promote mass production. The concept of CrowdFarming is a counterproject.
