OTTENBERG
VEITLHANSL

Welschriesling

A purist, reflecting the clay and limestone soil it´s grown on. Local pip fruit, green clementine, hyssop, and mint. Aged in used wooden barrels. Mouth-watering and salty, just like the primordial ocean that shaped our soils.

Our Standards

More than 15 years ago we started taking the first steps towards organic farming. We are now in the phase to convert to biodynamics. A logical step for us and a beginning without end. Every year we learn something new, observe nature and get closer to it bit by bit. We see our business as a form of modern circular economy in which wine is part of an overall concept. Partnerships with horse and cattle farmers have just as much space here as the use of the company’s own forest for energy production. Wine as a way of life.
