Martin took over the family wine estate in 1997, a founder member of the VDP Nahe run by the family since 1723. Of the 30 ha vineyards Tesch uprooted more than 10 and focused on grape varieties which appeared valuable to him, Riesling and Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir).
Riesling UNPLUGGED is a result of Martin`s passon for purity. Because 'in an age of technical reproduction and mass production the UNPLUGGED idea represents an appreciation of manual craftsmanship " Martin Tesch says. Today Riesling UNPLUGGED is a role model for many wines in Germany which follow the same idea.
In 2002 Tesch reduced his entire range to 5 single vineyards, aligned labels and packaging and focused on 100% dry wine. From his remaining Pinot Noir pantings, he makes a Blanc de Noir and Rose.
In 2014 Martin decided to leave the VDP citing a difference of end goal. His uncompromising nature has lead him on a different path to his peers in the VDP. - Importer Note
