Vater & Sohn

Vater & Sohn is the joint project between Michael Voelker of 2Naturkinder and his father. This is where Michael’s natural wine philosophy meets his father’s traditional approach. The wines are equally natural as those of 2Naturkinder except for a rough filtering and small addition of sulfur before bottling.
