“Da liegt der Hund Begraben” is a German expression that we also know in Denmark, where we say: There lies the dog buried. The term refers, among other things to what really lies behind a given problem, expectation, expression or perhaps a given wish.
“Da liegt der Hund Begraben” has in many ways fulfilled our desire to find a high-quality and reasonably priced German organic Pinot Noir, which in style comes as close to Burgundy as possible.
In the aroma you find typical floral notes, red berry fruits and forest floor, and in the taste the wine appears nicely juicy and with a remarkably complex, straight and harmonious structure, which probably bears comparison with the actual origin in Burgundy.
With its light and delicate character, the wine is suitable to be enjoyed at approx. 14 degrees for e.g. pasta dishes, salads, poultry, pork or grilled fish and shellfish.
We must take care of our beautiful nature. Therefore, the wines from ROOTS BEVERAGES are certified organic and carefully selected from sustainable producers who produce their wines without the use of pesticides and with a low content of sulphites. It is an invariable requirement that the quality of the wines is better than that found on the market in the same price range.
It makes no difference to the quality of a wine whether it is bottled at the producer abroad or transported to DK in sterile tanks to a state-of-the-art bottling plant close to where it is to be sold. But it makes a big difference to the environment. CO2 emissions are significantly reduced when transported in tanks rather than in bottles, as significantly more wine can be transported per lorry. The wines from ROOTS BEVERAGES are bought in bulk and bottled in DK, which means that the emission of CO2 in connection with transport is reduced by more than 30% (compared to domain-bottled wine).
With its approx. 22,000 ha. vineyards, the Palatinate is the second largest wine region in Germany and borders France to the south and Rheinhessen to the north. The area has long been known for its immediate white wines made from e.g. Riesling and Müller-Thurgau, its sparkling wines (sekt) and red wines – often made in Portugieser. The quality has been boosted in recent years as a new generation of manufacturers has come along. Today, you can find quite a few very exciting wines made from, among other things Pinot Noir and Kerner.
The range extends from robust and powerful wines to more simple, mild and refreshing types.
