Our vineyard is documented as a vineyard since 1220 and according to the settlement research much longer from the Celts. Most of the vineyards were already converted by my grandparents from cane culture to high culture. The map of the vineyards of the Austrian Empire around 1822 already shows in great detail the single vineyards according to their slope orientation and altitude.
Our local wines all come from the Ziersdorfer Köhlberg vineyard (Grapes are grown at this hillside for over 1000 years). Here we process exclusively our own biodynamically produced grapes, which were all harvested by hand, no fining; no technical filtration!
Our exclusive single vinyard wines come exclusively from old vines and the individual vineyards. Selective hand harvest, maceration in oak barrels, amphorae or granite barrels.
Our orange wine line has been around since 2015; Here the hand-picked grapes are fermented on their skins; depending on the vintage, a proportion of whole grapes is added in the mash fermentation. This usually lasts between 10 days and several months.
We are dedicated to craft wine. Real wine produced by real people in limited quantity, from the new generation of natural winemakers to the classic high-end Burgundians. Sorry, no industrial wine here!
We are not just another Direct-to-Consumer website. Actually, we don't sell directly to consumers at all, as we believe selling wine is an art. We don't want to replace it, rather just make it easier, so you can focus on the art.
We believe the trade should be as fluid as wine. Processes, information and transactions should flow as a fine wine, in and out of a Zalto glass. That's where a Digital Platform can help.
For the wine market to be healthy, firstly it must take care of the producers. We believe that the trade should be fair and transparent, across all channels, from the producer to the final consumer.
