In 2007, Stephanie & Eduard Tscheppe-Eselböck painstakingly restored a 17th century winery in Burgenland that had been abandoned for 20 years, including its 200-year-old screw press. The vines’ 20-year period of neglect was fortunate, as this allowed for all pesticide and chemical treatments to be washed away, immediately converting the vineyard to biodynamics. | Wiltrude and Joshuari’s son. Like his sister Theodora, he has a very affectionate and easy-going nature that is typical of the inhabitants of the Burgenland, and is an attractive young man, but in no way superficial. Despite already being exceptionally popular, he still retains some hidden qualities, which makes him even more interesting. His dream is to one day become an acclaimed world star.
