The key to Georges Road

You’ll see this key on all of our wines, and it’s the brand symbol for good reason. This key is Kirk’s personal nod to his time as a winemaker in Germany. Constant sampling and tasting of the wines in the cellar is important for any winemaker, and at WEINGUT LINGENFELDER, and many other wineries around Germany, this key is used to open the sample valve on all the wine tanks. This key is a constant reminder and inspiration, celebrating Kirk’s introduction to a style and philosophy of winemaking that became the foundation of Georges Road Wines — winemaking that places the quality of the fruit as paramount, and that his role is to be the guiding hand that emphasizes balance above all else.
