We love wine and the region we live in. It gives our work shape, draws a line, defines who we are and even more: who we are not.
Barren soils, bare rocks and a slope that makes you reverent. Extreme conditions under which only wine can survive.
Kalk & Kreide
Our signature wine. We’d like to see the amount of character this wine has on all human beings. Characterizing our idea of Southern Styria, our region. Refreshing citrus notes, local yellow fruit, elder flower, and black currants. Mineral and straight forward. Makes you long for the next sip.
This vineyard was planted by Josef Tement in the 1950s and has been since in the family’s ownership. Warm lemon, black currant, and apricot. Delicate and fresh with a gentle minerality and a mouth-watering finale.
Our icon and historical part of Zieregg is just as complex as life itself. Fully ripe citrus fruit, some litchi, and black currant. Firm and mineralic. Fascinating from the very first sip. Citric, salty, and indefinitely long. Attractive when young, irresistible when aged.
Family Winery Tement
Families are about solidarity but are also the sum of their individuals. Our family thrives together because of its differences, however people that need each other need space just as much to grow. Tradition is as important as change. Those who merely continue their ancestors path, without questioning it, stay spellbound, unable to ever see with their own eyes.
Keeping the vineyards and our soil in balance is our concern. More than 15 years ago we started to deal with organic agriculture, now we are
in the transition to biodynamics. A logical step and a beginning without end. It is our understanding of modern circular economy, in which transnational partnerships with horse and cattle farmers find space as well as the use of renewable energy.
Wine and a good life are tightly connected. The step from being a winemaker to being a host is a small one.
Something like Zieregg’s little brother. The wines on Slovenian soil are in no way inferior to the great idol.
