What to do with the Gutedel? That was one of the questions the brothers Christoph and Johannes Schneider asked themselves when they took over the winery am Schlipf in Weil am Rhein, Baden, from their parents a few years ago. Should they follow the other winemakers on their path? "There are two currents here in the Markgräflerland," says Christoph Schneider. One is oriented towards Switzerland. There, the Gutedel is called Chasselas, is often matured in wooden barrels and tastes rather opulent. In the other current, winemakers look towards Burgundy, the Gutedel can be reminiscent of Chardonnay there - if they are well made.
