winemaker portrait Michael Opitz:
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.
Fruity Rosé, based on mainly Blaufränkisch.
The human iris – As unique as a fingerprint and therefore the perfect symbol for our exceptionally high-quality wines. Every single one is genuinely unique – as unparalleled and individual as the occasions when we drink wine.
Cuvée Reserve – Tiglet | Zweigelt – Blaufränkisch
White: A blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc.
Red: A blend of Zweigelt and Blaufränkisch.
Feel in these two elegant wines the sun on the Pannonian lowlands from the very first sip.
Grande Cuvée Reserve – The Iris | Merlot – Blaufränkisch – Cabernet Sauvignon
Burgenland meets the big wide world: Merlot, Blaufränkisch, Cabernet Sauvignon. Fruitiness, tannin, acidity, length of finish, elegance, provenance: everything that makes a beautiful blend can be found in this wine.
Chardonnay Reserve | Ried Hedwighof
A stimulating wine that combines vitality and sophistication. Perfectly balanced with a delicate vanilla touch and wonderfully interwoven wood. Vibrant and lively on the palate, a gloriously fresh finish.
Pinot Blanc Reserve – Alte Reben | Ried Römerstein
A harmoniously balanced, full-bodied Pinot Blanc with a light touch of roasting flavour. Classy, fine acidity. Matured for 12 months in used French barrique.
Pinot Gris Reserve | Ried Salzgründe
A sophisticated wine full of finesse, with Burgundy elegance and reserved coolness. An upper-class Pinot Gris for lovers of soft tones.
Sauvignon Blanc Reserve | Ried Fuchsloch
A fascinating, sensuous wine with fully mature flavours, which impresses from the first sip. A fine balance of sweet fruitiness and crisp acidity.
Will be back soon!
Pinot Noir | Mother’s Vineyard
Soft, fruity and typical of the variety. Delicately elegant Pinot Noir that almost tries not to reveal its provenance. For real lovers of Burgundy wines.
Blaufränkisch Reserve | Ried Vierteljoch
An uncompromising, impressive Blaufränkisch – thrilling fruit tones – maximum complexity coupled with stimulating quaffability. The wine for high days and holidays.
Traminer – Pinot Gris | Orange Wine
Produced like a classic red wine, but from white grapes. The intensive aroma of Traminer and the creaminess of Chardonnay are complemented by a fine tannin structure.
Will be back soon!
Sauvig(no)n Blanc | Natural Wine
A different Sauvignon Blanc. Fine, elegant, balanced. No Sulfur added!
Roesler | Beerenauslese
Traminer | Beerenauslese
Chardonnay – Pinot Blanc | Trockenbeerenauslese
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.
A Pinot Gris fermented on the skins!
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.
