IZ & Zalto Decanter
in wooden box

For Zieregg ambassadors and #friendsinwine we offer some bottles of highly awareded Ried Zieregg “IZ” 2018. It is no secret that such a wine has to be prepared accordingly in order to develop its full potential in the glass. We put this competence in the hands of a master of glass culture. The ZALTO decanter No. 75 (incl. Tement branding) completes this rarity, which we have limited to only 36 pieces.

Soil: Ried Zieregg is an incredibly multifaceted vineyard site characterized by calcareous marl and coralline limestone soils. Due to the multi-layered terroir, we have divided the vineyard into meanwhile 17 plots in order to treat them selectively because of their individuality. „IZ®“ stands for an „intercellular berry fermentation“ and was developed by Armin and Manfred in 2005.rnEvery single berry has more than 100 days to store and "mindset" all the aromas and terroir information slowly and gently. The alcoholic fermentation begins intercellular in the healthy berry skin. After 100 days the grapes are getting pressed. After natural fermentation the wine matures 42 months "sur lie" in neutral oak barrels.

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.
