Our vineyards in the area of Kitzeck-Sausal (Ried Hochkittenberg) are dominated by schist and slate conglomerates and cool winds from the Koralpe.
This stimulating climate combined with the Sausaler prehistoric rock gives the wine vibrant acidity and cool flavours. After more than 18 months on the lees this elegant Sauvignon Blanc impressively reflects its local origin.

Wine is not static.Armin Tement
It evolves, matures and changes over time.
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.
