Producer Profile


Karl Fritsch, the winemaker behind these succulent Zweigelt Rosé and Gruner Veltliner wines, brings an especially terrific value to the table and has been fully dedicated to biodynamics since 2006. “The grapevine and the winemaker are both parts of a universal and balanced system. The soil, the location, the climate influence every single vine; I, as a vintner, endeavor to create a positive supporting influence for these natural gifts and givens during the periods of rest, growth, and gestation,” Karl describes his role and winemaking philosophy. He does so through the careful addition of selected natural substances such as teas and other biodynamic preparations, by respecting the lunar phases, the vitality and composition of the soil and its microorganisms.

Where The Wines Come From


Vienna, the capital city of Austria, has a rich winemaking tradition dating back centuries. In recent years, the region has also become a hub for natural winemaking, blending modern techniques with a respect for tradition. Situated along the Danube River, Vienna's vineyards benefit from a continental climate and diverse soils, including loess, limestone, and gravel. Natural winemakers in Vienna prioritize organic and biodynamic farming methods, cultivating indigenous grape varieties such as Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, and Zweigelt with minimal intervention. By eschewing chemical additives and focusing on natural fermentation, they produce wines that reflect the region's unique terroir and showcase the purity of the fruit. Vienna's natural wines are known for their crisp acidity, vibrant fruit flavors, and elegant structure. Grüner Veltliner, in particular, shines with its peppery spice and citrus notes, while reds like Zweigelt offer bright berry flavors and smooth tannins. As the demand for authentic and terroir-driven wines continues to grow, Vienna remains at the forefront of the natural wine movement, offering a taste of Austria's winemaking heritage and innovation with every bottle.
