Maria and Alexander Koppitsch took over their parents 5.5ha vineyard in 2011 and moved from selling the grapes to making their own wine. The vineyards are in Neusiedl am See, a small village situated at the shores of the Neusidl Lake and on the eastern end of the Leitha Mountains which feature soft, rolling hills of mostly limestone soil. Using Rudolf Steiner’s biodynamic principles to cultivate their grapes, they pride themselves on performing every aspect of the vineyard management and the winemaking by hand, on a very small scale.
