vineyard

My cultivated vine-growing area is about 14 hectares (ca. 2.47 acres), the majority of which is dedicated to red wine: mostly Blaufänkisch, also Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zweigelt and St. Laurent. My white wine vines encompass the region-specific varieties Welschriesling, Green Veltliner and White Burgundy. The iron-rich clay-silt terroir on ancient terraces allows the production of red wines that are full of character and seem almost cool. My wine-making methods are very purist and close to nature. I do not mind plants and herbs growing between the vines, I even encourage the idea. These herbs and plants, as well as the Pannonian climate with its hot days and cold nights, together with the unique soil, provide my wines with everything they need. Nature makes my wines. My task is to make sure that the right thing happens at the right time: pruning, thinning, picking – no more and no less.
