Our 10 hectare estate is located in Austria, southern Styria, near the Slovenian border. We, Maria and Sepp Muster, happily live and work here. We do most of our work by hand, which is difficult on such steep ground, but we operate from a bio-dynamic viewpoint.

 

In 2003 we became members of the Demeter Association, an international biological community for those devoted to bio-dynamic work of the land. In order to preserve the vitality of the grapes, we see ourselves more as companions of the process than winemakers. We adhere to our motto of “Less is more”.

 

We focus on letting the wine transform itself. This tradition gives the wine room to express itself and makes the use of chemical additives almost unnecessary.
