Georg takes his role as farmer and winemaker of his family domain very seriously, but has an easy laugh and relaxed manner. Blaufränkisch, the Burgenland's terroir-transparent grape, is the crown jewel of the estate and given several single vineyard bottlings. Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay, Burgundian varietals, which have a centuries long history in the region are their main whites. Farming is practicing organic and cellar work is hands off with fermentation and aging in large, neutral, traditional Slovenian oak casks.
