How originate his wine „voyeur“?
When he started with the vinification with amphora´s for this wine he had several big amphora´s prepared. During the wine process they developed so nice that he was so proud of it and everybody was so curious about his new wine that he invited few people showing his wine with tastings.

...but because of this the wines got destroyed because it got too much air and sadly he had to throw it all away. He started all over again with one part red and one part white - but this time nobody was allowed to taste, nothing was opened, the visitors were only allowed to observe… there the name of the wine was clear to name it „voyeur“. When it was finished he tasted the wines and they where both amazingly delicious that he could not decide which one was his favorite so he radical mixed them to one. here we go, enjoy!
