Nibiru - Kamptal, Austria
We came across Nibiru from one of our awesome Instagram followers and they did not disappoint! Taking over their parents vineyard, Josef and his partner Julia are creating some delicious natural wines in the Kamptal region.
Their vineyards are farmed biodynamically, without certification. Many of the vines are very old and, thanks to their deep roots, bring a lot of liveliness and structure to the wines. You can feel that even with their lightest and most classic wines. The work in the older vineyards is often more complex than in young vineyards, much time is put into the conservation of these.
We visited Josef and Julia in November 2018, navigating a maze of windy, high-altitude roads with very little visibility as fog settled over the Austrian valley. Once at the winery, Joseph brought us to some of their best plots, where they're starting to grow high-altitude Pinot Noir and Riesling.
