I am one of the lucky guys making wine in Nationalpark Neusiedlersee working with old vines. Their roots drive deep in search of water and nourishment, resulting in grapes with high intensity of flavor, capable of expressing their soil.

 

All efforts are focused on protecting this special kind of fine and subtle aromas and flavors in these fantastic berries. I think that my way can be the only path for the craftsman wanting to make the authentic wines I love.
