REGION: Pfalz, Germany
VARIETIES: Pinot Noir
Oliver Zeter bottled his first vintage in 2007. Now with 6 hectares of his own vines, along with great relationships with some of the premier growers of the region, he is establishing himself as one of the real rising stars of German winemaking. The drinking bear that adorns the label comes from the quill of a well known Pfalz ar!st and friend of Oliver’s great grandfather Walter Baer (German for bear). On one occasion in 1933 Walter was unable to meet his friends for a regular ‘glass of wine or two’ and the artist sent the sketch to his friend Walter the ‘bear’.
