Buddy Talk

The grapes in these cuvées go together well – like real buddies. That is precisely why our “Buddy Talk” wines are perfectly suited to a relaxed evening with friends or with your nearest and dearest.

The symbiosis of quality and accessibility. The wine reflects the nature of the area: sunny, warm, bright – but playful and diverse.

The quintessence of the Seewinkel region. Combines the typical white grape varieties of the region in one harmonious, fruity, charming cuvée. A companion for hot summer days, which also gives pleasure in the winter. Simply casual.

New in 2020! Fruity Rosé, based on mainly Blaufränkisch.

Free Solo

A quirky boundary crosser that loves risk – that is our Free Solo. Three outstanding grape varieties form a daring combination here, which you will either love or loathe: a balancing act, just like in free climbing.

The cuvée of perfectly ripened grapes combines the fruitiness of Zweigelt, the fine tannins of Merlot and the spiciness of Blauburger to produce a harmonious, exciting wine with a long finish.

These three varieties combine the roses of Traminer on the nose, the fine nutmeg of Muskat Ottonel on the palate and the concentration of Ruländer in the finish, to produce one exceptional taste sensation.

Will be back soon!

Our philosophy: To serve pure wine

What makes a good wine? It must taste good to the person who is drinking it. In short, for us, there is (almost) no such thing as a bad wine; it simply tastes different. Variety, origin and vintage – each individual component is essential and should be clear to taste. In harmonious combination they make the wine a complete work of art.

Under the hardworking sunshine of the southern Seewinkel region in the Austrian state of Burgenland, our white and red grape varieties flourish in various vineyards around Apetlon. The unique flora and fauna of this region and its Pannonian climate are just perfect for winegrowing. The result: straightforward and honest wines.

As a relatively young winery, which produced its first drop of wine around the end of the noughties, we do not have a long history and are therefore also under no obligation. That means we are free. We like to move away from the mainstream and to back independent, authentic wines. Organic, sustainable and fair farming is not something we spend a long time talking about – we just get on with it. True to our motto “No tricks. Just wine.” we leave our wine as far as possible as it is: with no unnecessary technology and processing. Ultimately, we simply want to serve our customers good, pure wine – no more and no less.
