Seefeld – sandy soil – Seefeld is situated in the west of Neusiedl am See, at the last bits of solid land before the marshes of the lake start. The whole plot is flat, dry and very windy. Since Seefeld is hot and straight in the haze of lake Neusiedl, the grapes grow very intense aromas.

Vinification: in the vineyard, whole bunches were put into a 750l open top plastic-vat, which was then driven back to the cellar. Constant addition of CO2 ensured a precise fermentation. After about 6 days, we stomped the bunches and extended the skin-contact up to 16 days. Then, we took off the juice and pressed the mash. Wine went straight into Barriques (225L). natural fermentation. no temperature control at any stage of winemaking. no air-condition in the cellar. occasional batonnage. matured on gross lees for several months without any additives. no fining. no filtration. no sulfites added. bottled by hand.

Nested on the shallow slops of Burgenland next to the beautiful Neusiedl lake are the vineyards of Maria and Alex Koppitsch. Since 2011 they are preserving the natural wine making traditions that have been in their family for over 500 years now. 

Taking on the holistic approach – they make sure, that all the work at the vineyard is done with respect and immense amount of care. At the core of their ethics are biodynamic principles and persistent manual labour.
