Mechtild and Bertholdi’s son, the brother of Emmeram and Timotheus, and married to Wiltrude. A man with style and a charasmatic, complex character, he has a mind of his own. Indeed, as the principal heir to Gut Oggau, with his dry humour and quick wit, he can more than stand up to his father.
35yo vines. Hand harvested, destemmed. Barrel fermented, three weeks on skins, elevage in 500L and 1200L barels for 12 months without batonnage. Unfined, unfiltered. No adds. BIG BOTTLE.
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.
