Our wine prices reflect taxes and fees inflicted on us by the PLCB, which are substantially more damaging than any neighboring state's policies—it's our intention to price everything as affordably as we can within this system. PLCB sucks.

Spätburgunder Rosé

Enderle & Moll


Rien sans peine. Nothing without pain, printed on every bottle (and cork) produced by Sven Enderle and Florian Moll, who together make up Enderle & Moll. Sven and Florian work in the foothills of the Black Forest in Baden, Germany- more specifically, the tiny village of Münchweier, just 20 minutes East of the Rhine. Although they showed little concern for mainstream trends and acceptance, E&M have produced what are widely regarded as some of the best pinot noir and white wines in Germany, earning them a serious cult following.

Friends from wine school in 2003, they went on to work for other producers before coming back together to make their first vintage in 2007. They were, and continue to be, a small operation. Starting out of a former potato cellar and using an old basket press, they remain very low-tech and produce their wines from just 7 ha (2.5 of which they own, the rest rented), farming everything organically and following biodynamic principles. Everything is done by hand and all wine is bottled unfined & unfiltered.

This is a small operation bucking regional trends for larger commercial production, making some extremely refined and unique wines- dudes are cool as hell:)

The Spatburgunder Rosé is always one of the most beguiling and transfixing wines from E & M, it can be as structured as the Basis, especially in vintages like 2019. If any rosé is going to arrive stateside in October, this is appropriate. It has the making of a perfect party guest — a fun fresh side plus depth if you dig and pay attention. From 50 year old vines on limestone and sandstone. this sees 5 days of maceration on the skins before being pressed into barrel. Lightly filtered, and almost no sulfur added (11mg free SO2).
