A long time ago, the Clevner (the common name for a Pinot Noir at Lake Zurich) was one of my favorite wines. At that time - although I already liked to drink wine often - I appreciated the light, almost buoyant nature of these "country wines", as they were (and are) usually vinified here, I had no trouble at all with the somewhat sharp acidity.

In addition, the wine was important in our family history (memories of our youth) and was closely connected with the Einsiedeln monastery at that time. This is also a remarkable story. In the meantime the monastery (again) makes its own Leutschner and the youth memories have almost faded.
