The Zillinger family have been running these vineyards biodynamically for 30 years.  First ran by Hans and now his son, Johannes - is an exceptional example of what ‘natural’ truly means. From home-made compost, to growing their herbs, they are guided by strong principles of biodynamic agriculture..

Johannes believes in letting nature going its own way. To help this process he aims to interfere in both vineyard and the cellar as little as possible. In his own words "if you work on healthy soil in the vineyard, you get healthy vines, which produce more exciting wines. And most of all, if you let the good things simply take their course in the cellar."
