Background

"Whereas winemaking was a hobby for earlier generations at this domain (a way of winding down after a day's work at the nearby
Mercedes-Benz factory),  Andi Knauss has long known he wanted to be a vigneron. After wine school and a stage in Austria (where
Andi learned how to work organically in the vineyard, and to care for the soil) he took over the reins at Weingut Knauss in 2004, and
in less than 10 years, he has developed one of the most important and exciting estates we know of.  The vineyards are worked naturally,
and winemaking is careful and conscientious. Natural fermentations and minimal sulfur are the norm throughout the range, and some cuvees see no sulfur at all.

About La Boutanche- When we were first starting out (Selection Massale), we quickly became disappointed with the lack of good natural wine in the $20 range. Not being the kind of people to say ‘well, it is what it is’, we got to work thinking about how we could remedy this situation. So, we started talking with our producers and, already knowing what we wanted - native yeast fermentations, low or zero SO2 additions, and the like; basically pure unadulterated glou glou that we could put into a liter-sized screw-top bottle and would be a great introduction to natural wine - it didn’t take long for us to find winemakers who were willing to partner with us on this project. All it needed was a name.

Trollinger (also known as Schiava in northern Italy) is traditionally a very important red grape in Swabia, and Andi is a keen advocate of it. This wine may come in cheap, cheerful liter bottles, but it it is seriously good suff." - Selection Massale
