Susanne Albert crafts handmade soaps from natural ingredients in the Nordschwarzwald soap school and workshop. We discover the benefits of these natural soaps over regular soaps from the drugstore. And why the soaps like to rest a little before use.
Wine production is more of an art than a science. So who in their right mind would get the idea to buy, overhaul, and run a vineyard without any prior knowledge?

However, there is a meticulously well-planned company behind this concept.
