In 2011, Alex and Maria Koppitsch took control of the families 6 hectares of vines in Burgenland, 40 minutes from the Austrian capital, Vienna. From 2005 to 2011 Alex worked alongside Gerhard Pittnauer in the neighbouring village of Gols. During this time, Gerhard converted his vineyard practices to biodynamic farming and Alex took these principles and applied them to the family farm in 2007. Prior to 2011, the family sold their fruit off to local producers.
Pomelo and pink grapefruit in the autumn sun. Orange zest, sour star burst fruit. A little rhubarb, great freshness, pops of fruit dance around. Tang and full of life.
