... this is the motto and spirit of the young winegrower at the lake of Caldaro. In the following paragraph Armin explains what wine and butterflies have in common.
Evolution and metamorphosis are nature`s tools that fashion and create life forms in their never- ending variety. The metamorphosis from egg – caterpillar – to pupa produces the wondrous butterfly. In wine making this cycle of change from vine flower – grape –barrel produces equally amazing results. The wine barrel / vat like the pupa case of the butterfly, hides, protects and nurtures the magic that is to come. What emerges eventually! Amazing beautiful butterflies of myriad species that fly around their new world enjoying the thrill and excitement of their new freedom. And so too, from the wine barrel comes an infinite variety of wines that flow freely and flutter around the “Wine world”; there for us to appreciate and enjoy. Perhaps to enthuse us with the wonderful sense of freedom that the butterfly feels when it first spreads its wings to fly.
In celebration of nature`s gifts Wiengut Morandell has chosen therefore to give our vines the names of butterflies, some of which often feed and thrive on the indigenous plants of this area. The colours and designs on our wine labels mirror the intricate patterns on their wings.
Like these butterflies we wish to send you flying freely on a rich, emotional and rewarding journey of “Wine” discovery.
