In 2007 Christina returned to the family's 70 acres, after studying oenology and wine management in London, and decided to go organic. In 2013 she began converting to organic techniques, and by 2018 the estate began the organic certification process. Located in the Carnuntum winemaking region, the winery is just east of Vienna and north of the Neusidler. The warm summer days are cooled off by cold winds blowing off the Danube in the evening. This, along with high iron red gravel and loess soils, help retain acidity in Christina’s wines. The primitive cellar practices would not be unfamiliar to the Romans who once occupied these lands. This Rose spends a few hours on it’s skins before racking. A long cold fermentation helps retain freshness. Christina uses zero additives through the wine making process except for a minute amount of sulfur at bottling. Her wines are never fined or filtered. Christina’s wines are focused, bright and full of joy. They possess that nervy vibrancy that are emblematic of great natural wines. And like many Austrian natural wines we’ve come across, they deftly balance fruit mineral and acidity. This is a joy to drink and a steal to boot. Prost!
