EESTI KEELES

Become a winegrower with us and let’s make Estonian winemaking history!

Our aim is to make Estonian winemaking history by producing our very own wine - Muhu wine, Estonian wine. We plan to establish Estonia’s biggest vineyard and we invite YOU to join us!

We started our project in Muhu Island in the spring of 2012 by planting our first 100 vines, and in spring of 2013 we planted another 400. Those 500 vines have taught us a great deal and we can proudly say that nearly all of the vines have thrived in the Estonian climate and we are ready to take the next step.

This spring we want to plant another 1700 plants that are already on their way from Germany and our target is to have 10 000 vines in the ground by 2017 in our Muhu Veinitalu (Estonian for winefarm). We want our Muhu Veinitalu to become Estonia’s first wine tourism destination where wine enthusiasts not only have an opportunity to get acquainted with, but to also join us in the vine growing and wine making processes.

Vines to be planted in 2014



FOR WHITE WINE / WHITE GRAPE VARIETIES
• Solaris (hybrid sort) 500
• Müller-Thurgau 100
• Riesling 100
• Bacchus 50
• Kerner 50



FOR RED WINE / RED GRAPE VARIETIES
• Rondo (half-hybrid) 500
• Pinot Noir Precocé aka Frühhburgunder 500

We have always believed in sharing our story and that winemaking could and should be a collective activity. That is why we are offering an opportunity for anyone to become a winemaker and join us in developing our Veinitalu.
