It is finally here, the new wine vintage 2020

Warm days - cool nights and also rain, this is exactly the combination we had very often this summer, which has an immensely positive influence on the character of this year's wines through their liveliness and very early, expressive drinking soap. Some bottles have already been filled from this year's vintage. An interesting 2020 vintage that is already waiting to be tasted. For the benefit!

Grape harvest 2020

A few days later than the previous wine years, we started the 2020 harvest, which, due to the reduced number of grapes in spring, resulted in a natural grape selection on the one hand, and very beautiful, ripe and above all grapes with high varietal characteristics on the other, thanks to a balanced summer. The stars are therefore very good for the perfect 2020 vintage. The grape harvest is almost complete, the late-ripe red wine varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are still collecting the last rays of sunshine, before they are harvested.

Wine competition 2020

At this year's Lower Austrian Wine Awards (5500 wines from Lower Austria) we were able to bring home 5 gold medals with our sustainably produced wines. What a great confirmation that loving craftsmanship also bears fruit, we are really happy!

Each year, one of the world's most significant and rigorous wine competitions pays only a low single digit percentage of the approximately 1700 wines hired from 26 countries and around 100 growing areas.

The new redwine variety is bottled

After an average of 2 years of aging in small oak barrels and frequent tastings, the barrels were emptied in the past few days and the wines found their way into the bottle. Now a new vintage is just around the corner, which, due to the careful vinification and the slow maturation in the wood, produces red wines whose variety and harmony are hard to beat.
