Our Distiller Michael Weder

Michael Weder4

In 2007, when the oldest wine farm in Namibia, the KRISTALLKELLEREI near Omaruru in the heart of the Erongo Mountains, was up for sale, Michael Weder and his wife decided to take up the challenge to cultivate white and red wine vines under the special conditions of the desert climate with 330 days of sunshine and sandy soils. After twelve years of experience, the result can be savoured in the uniqueness of the wines. The production of dry white wine from the French Colombard grape variety, which leaves every wine connoisseur surprised by the exceptionally high alcohol content of 15-17% vol, is currently the focus.

However, Michael Weder’s true passion lies in the creation of fine spirits from the fruit varieties cultivated in Namibia, like the date, pomegranate, prickly-pear and the endemic Kavango Orange. Each of these specialities from Namibia have become an insider tip for connoisseurs and collectors on the European market. The awards received in recent years, like at the DESTILLATA in Vienna (2011) for the NAPPA, the Namibian Grappa matured on oak and the prickly-pear fine spirit MATISA, were amongst the first appreciations of his pioneering achievement. In 2018, the NAMGIN with Namibian devil’s claw won the silver medal among 2200 participating fine spirits at the WORLD SPIRITS COMPETITION in San Francisco. Continuous innovation and quality optimization is the winemaker and distiller Michael Weder´s main ambition.
