About the Producer: Koppitsch
Alexander and Maria Koppitsch began making wine in Burgenland in 2011. They took over their parents 5.5-hectare winery and moved from selling their grapes into making their own wine. Like his father and grandfather before him, Alex does not believe in introducing any additives into the grapes or the wine. They use Rudolf Steiner’s biodynamic principles to cultivate their grapes, and pride themselves on performing every aspect of the vineyard management and the winemaking by hand, on a very small scale. Their Authentisch wines are made to be easy to drink, receiving a light filtering and only a small addition of sulfur.
Full-bodied and rich red wines are produced under the influence of the hot, continental Pannonian climate, in the eastern region of Burgenland. Within this area, there are many distinctions that play an equally important role. For example, the Eisenberg hill in the most southerly part of Burgenland, enjoys a complex soil structure and touch of refreshing climatic influences from neighbouring Steiermark, that provide ideal growing conditions for Blaufränkisch and other red wine varieties with fine mineral characters and unmatched elegance. The legendary Ruster Ausbruch, the internationally renowned noble sweet dessert wine, epitomizes the long and illustrios history of the region but its now on the map for dry table wines.
Zweigelt (pronounced TSVYE-gelt) was developed in 1922 in Austria by a scientist crossing Saint Laurent and Blaufränkisch. Today, it is the most widely planted red variety in Austria and is gaining popularity in Canada. A hearty grape able to stand up to the cooler growing conditions, it produces wines with a marked freshness, floral character and, in some cases, sweet spice.
