It all started with a holiday in Champagne, which sparked the passion for sparkling wine. The year 1989 was a milestone – we started with the traditional bottle fermentation method. With the varietal and single vintage sparkling of the typical Kamptal varieties, we have found our own Austrian sparkling wine philosophy. With a bit of luck, our philosophy was confirmed by the leading positions at home and abroad.
In the classic line, the secret to success is based on two factors: on the one hand, the high quality of the sparkling wines, which present themselves clearly, fruity and fragrant, and on the other hand on the gentle second fermentation in the bottle.
Together, the character of the respective variety and the taste of the base wine are perfectly expressed. The choice of sparklings is big. We refine the varieties Grüner Vetliner, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Burgundy, Traminer, Muskateller, Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé, Zweigelt and Pinot Noir.
As with still wines, the aromas are very popular at the moment. However, these must be clear, radiant and vinified with a distinct variety character. It is precisely these attributes that we want to underline in our basic wines. The fruit components are enhanced by a fine perlage in the sparkling wine.
This is the art of producing good sparklings.
