Schaffhausen, die Heimat des Blauburgunders

Der Weinbaukanton Schaffhausen präsentiert sich heute in Hochform. Seine Winzer und Weinproduzenten sind so gut ausgebildet wie nie zuvor. Im Einklang mit der Natur – integrierte Produktion (IP) ist Standard – und mit Hilfe einer klug eingesetzten Kellertechnik erzeugen sie in einer früher nie für möglich gehaltenen Dichte fabelhafte Weiss- und Rotweine – frische, süffige Apéro-Tropfen, aber auch kräftige, harmonische Essensbegleiter. Der Blauburgunder spielt die Hauptrolle. Drei von vier Rebstöcken tragen Pinot-Noir-Trauben. Sekundiert wird er von unzähligen anderen Rebsorten wie Riesling-Silvaner oder Chardonnay, Diolinoir oder Merlot.
