Viticulture: Biodynamic Farming / Natural Wine
Vinification: Velue Zweigelt comes from the first harvest through Zweigelt plants in Haidthal and Sonnberg. The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand. After 10 days of spontaneous de-stemmed fermentation, the wine ages for 16 months in a large wooden barrel.
Spiced plum galore! The perfect everyday wine! Keeps really well open, so you can have a glass with dinner or friends and don’t have to worry if there’s a bit left.
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."
