No Compromise in Quality
Quality is the foremost objective here and is carried out by organic practices in the vineyards and during the expansion of wines. The grapes are allowed to be on the vines for as long as possible so that they can ripe adequately and show the qualities in the wines. Their wines are fresh and sparkling with a natural fruity taste and aroma. The main grape varietals they grow in their farms include Welschriesling, Grüner Veltliner, Chardonnay, Weißburgunder, Sauvignon Blanc, Gelber Muskateller, Zweigelt, St. Laurent, Blaufränkisch, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, and Syrah. The best grapes are handpicked to make their famous red, white, rose, sparkling, and dessert wines. The winery has ‘More Than Wine’ as a slogan, and it perfectly shoes their commitment and philosophy towards winemaking.
