Renowned winemaker of the Douro Valley, Dirk Niepoort heads up this collaboration. Working alongside his son, Daniel Niepoort and Phillip Kettern, third generation Mosel winemaker, they have come together with a vision to create expressive and creative styles of wines.
Over the decades, Niepoort has adopted a wine making approach to innovate, diversify and break taboos, whilst maintaining traditions. Here they apply this philosophy, working with their international partners.
Phillip Kettern is representative of a new generation of German winemakers, he is a member of ‘Generation Riesling’, a collective of young wine professionals, dedicated to the production and promotion of German wines.
Fio Jo Jo is skin contact wine made from 100% Riesling grapes from the Mosel. Here the team have created an orange wine with an approachable style. Only half of the wine goes through a soft skin maceration.
It is clean and elegant, with racy acidity and a hint of apricot Tarte Tatin!
