Gut Oggau Rot "Atanasius" 2020

Gut Oggau is a 13 hectares Austrian wine estate located in the province of Burgenland by the Lake Neusiedl. The estate is today run by Eduard Tscheppe, son of a winemaker, and his wife Stephanie Tscheppe-Eselbock, daughter of a 2 Michelin stars Austrian restaurant owner, who took over the estate several years ago. The vineyards are cultivated according to biodynamic principles (Demeter certified) with traditional winemaking methods in the cellar. Also, each wine is vinified with the grapes coming from a single plot, allowing to get a wide range of authentic and different personalities of wines. Each cuv�e is named after a fictional character created by Jung von Matt (German designer) and is integrated in a family tree (grandparent, parents and children). Stephanie and Eduard focus on quality as a permanent quest, their aim is to achieve a natural vine balance and process the grapes as gently as possible, allowing them to make the best use of their vineyard's strength. With only 15 to 18,000 bottles a year, Gut Oggau's wines are some of the most sought after wines of austria.
