A brand new release from Wiemer: a delicious and playful dry Riesling harvested & named for days on the biodynamic calendar.

Sourced from the HJW Vineyard, the "Flower Day" release is a counterpart to the HJW Bio. This wine highlights their commitment to ecosystem health and comprehensive viticulture practices. Wiemer adheres to unique farming methods that focus not solely on our vineyards but on the totality of our farm, promoting biodiversity in adjacent fields, forests, and meadows, while utilizing cover crops, beneficials, and homeopathic teas and preparations.

On the biodynamic calendar, there are four kinds of days: root days, flower days, fruit days, and leaf days. Each of these days has certain tasks associated with it; fruit days are meant for harvesting, leaf days for watering, root days for pruning. On flower days, the vineyard is left alone to rest - so we suggest resting and enjoying this delicious riesling!

harvested 9/24, 9/27 & 10/14 (fruit days on the biodynamic calendar)
