Caring for vines organically, enjoying pure natural wine - the PIWI book
- Big on the rise: ecological viticulture with fungus-resistant grape varieties (PIWI varieties).
- The book by PIWI pioneers Fredi Strasser and Franziska Löpfke, Willimann Jürg (photographer)
"I don't want to spray my vines!" This idea has driven the Swiss agronomist and organic pioneer Fredi Strasser since his youth. Thanks to the rediscovery of fungus-resistant grape varieties (PIWI varieties), his dream has become a reality: With his family, he has built a successful biodynamic wine-growing business with resistant grape varieties in Oberstammheim, Zurich, for decades. He explains his rich practical and technical knowledge here in easily understandable language for those interested in viticulture and experts. He describes a new way to natural viticulture, to good PIWI wine and how nature and biodiversity can be found alongside commercial operations.
