The “old farmer’s calendar” on the label of this sauvignon blanc tells you about the year in which it was grown. Jakobi is deeply rooted in our region.
In each vintage, the label for the aromatic, elegant Sauvignon Blanc and its symbols tell you all about the year when the wine was made. It is based on the age-old “Mandl” calendar, once created for the illiterate, which still adorns many a house in the region today. We added our own symbols of viticulture to mark specific events of the year.
Jakobitag – the day of the namesake Saint James – is a feast day in our village. On 25th July, the wind wheels or “Klapotetz” are put up here in Ratsch and surrounding areas. Their rattling noise is said to keep the birds away from the precious grapes.
