Producer Profile


2Naturkinder, spearheaded by Melanie Drese and Michael Völker, represents a dynamic shift in winemaking practices at their family winery established in 1843 along the banks of the river Main in northern Bavaria. Since taking the reins in 2012, they've revolutionized their approach, converting all 7 hectares of vineyards to organic farming methods. Their commitment extends beyond cultivation, as they craft wines without additives and eschew fining and filtering, exemplified even in their Vater & Sohn blend, which contains no added sulfites. Evolving from a parametric understanding to a holistic ethos, they view soil not merely as a substrate but as a living entity intricately connected to the ecosystem.

Where The Wines Come From


Volkach, nestled in the Franconia wine region of Bavaria, Germany, is emerging as a hub for natural wine production, showcasing the region's commitment to quality and sustainability. With its picturesque vineyard landscapes along the Main River and diverse terroir characterized by limestone-rich soils, Volkach provides an ideal setting for viticulture. Indigenous grape varieties such as Silvaner, Müller-Thurgau, and Bacchus thrive in this environment, yielding wines that are vibrant, expressive, and reflective of their origin. Natural winemakers in Volkach embrace organic and biodynamic farming practices, nurturing their vineyards with care and respect for the land. In the cellar, they employ minimalist techniques, allowing the grapes to ferment spontaneously with native yeasts and minimal sulfur usage, resulting in wines that authentically express the terroir of Volkach. The resulting wines are aromatic, elegant, and reflective of the region's unique landscapes and winemaking traditions. Whether enjoyed with local Franconian cuisine or savored on their own, natural wines from Volkach offer a taste of Germany's winemaking heritage and a glimpse into the future of sustainable viticulture.
