A review by Cider Explorer / Berlin, Germany

Abavas, a family-owned winery producing apple wine, cider, apple brandy, eau de vie among others was established in 2010 by Mārtinš Barkāns in the beautiful valley of Abava, Latvia, hence the name. But Mārtinš doesn’t focus only on beverages made from apples, also other fruits such as grapes, blackcurrants, chokeberries, raspberries but also veggies such as rhubarb are used as raw material for the production of their alcoholic products.

Exotisches aus Lettland

Nothing is impossible in Latvia!” – das verkündet zumindest Martins Barkans auf der Website seiner Abavas Family Winery. Das Unternehmen aus dem lettischen Slampe County begann ursprünglich als reine Weinkellerei. Im Jahr 2008 stieg Barkans dann in die Produktion von Fruchtund Apfelwein ein. Inzwischen umfasst das Portfolio von Abavas auch Cider und Rhubarb Sparkling Wine.

Ausgezeichnete Tropfen

Auch in Lettland hat Apfelwein keine lange Tradition. „Als wir noch zur UDSSR gehörten, gab es einige billige Cider“, erklärt Mãrtinš Barkãns, Betreiber von Abavas. Um das zu ändern, produziert er seit 2010 Apfelwein. Viele Tipps hat er dafür von Christoph Hammel erhalten, einem befreundeten Winzer in Kirchheim. An Barkãns’ Stand konnten die Messe-Besucher auch Tropfen probieren, die eine Auszeichnung bekommen hatten. Für den Apple Cider Brut ergatterte er einen Pomme d’Or, während ihm sein Brandy „Apple in Oak“ einen Pomme d’Argent bescherte.

Wine tourism in Latvia: Abavas Winery

Sabile and Abavas river valley it's located in are famous for their wine-making tradition. So, if you're going to set up a winery, you might just as well do it here, reasoned Mārtinš Barkāns. And so, about five years ago, that's what he did and Abavas Winery was born.
And that's where things get interesting. His plan, you see, is nothing short of ambitious. He wants to make quality sparkling wine. Out of Latvian grapes. No mean feat considering vitis vinifera, practically the only vine that produces grapes for wine-making doesn't survive in under -20°c.

Apparently his neighbour has attempted growing Riesling, but failed. Mārtinš himself has tried his luck with notoriously fussy Pinot Noir, with similar results. He is, however, feeling cautiously optimistic about its relative, Austrian Zweigelt.

A variety of hybrids have been bred in Latvia, using vitis lambrusca and vitis amurensis- vines, better suited for cold climates. Wine Hill is Sabile is a showroom for these, but Mārtinš doesn't think too much of them. Zilga for instance, is only good for table wine. At best. Skujins 675- variety, however, is something he too has dabbled with.

"Terroir doesn't account for much this North", he retorts. "Ability to tolerate freezing temperatures, that's what matters".

Über uns

Firmenporträt

Weingut Abavas Ģimenes vīna darītava oder kurz Abavas ist nahe des kleinen Dorfes Sabile ansässig, das in der Sabile-Region liegt, rund 100 km nordwestlich von Riga. Wir sind also in Lettland! Hier haben  wir uns einen Traum erfüllt, der 2007 bei einem Besuch kleiner, familiärer Weingüter in der Toskana begann. Allerdings mussten wir als Idealisten einige Steine, fast möchte man sagen Hinkelsteine, aus dem Weg räumen, bevor unser lettisches Weingut Realität wurde. Doch wie heißt es bei uns nichts ist unmöglich in Lettland und so wurde im Jahr 2010 aus dem Traum Wirklichkeit.

Der Standort Sabile, nahe des Abava-Flusstals, ist durch sein Kleinklima, einige der wenige Regionen, wo Weinbau möglich ist. Doch schnell stellten wir fest, dass die eigentlichen Früchte unserer nördlichen Heimat Schwarze Johannisbeeren, Himbeeren, Rhabarber, Aronia, Holunder und natürlich Äpfel sind... Und auch aus diesen Früchten kann man köstliche Weine und ebenso köstliche Brandweine machen. Aber wie! Und so startete unsere Geschichte, denn die Cider, Fruchtweine und Obstbrände sind aus der Szene-Gastronomie Rigas nicht mehr wegzudenken. Mittlerweile haben wir ABAVAS Gut allerdings 4,5 ha mit Rebsorten bepflanzt, darunter die deutsche Solaris und heimische Rebsorten.

Ab Herbst 2017 ist auch unsere neue  Vinothek in Umgebung Tukums fuer die Öffentlichkeit geöffnet.
