NEW & RARE. BIG BOT. ONLY ONE. Steffi and Edi on this wine: “Meet Cecilia, the new family member! You see her, you taste her, you feel her, she inspires you. She doesn’t care about conventions, and won’t be put in a box. She shows you that it’s good to be a little bit different. Mixed in white and red, rooted on limestone she shines bright and proves there’s much more beyond the defined categories. A lover of horses, her soil releases distinct character; we know this is only the start of a beautiful journey we’ll share together. A journey into being one’s true self, without any pretension. Together with Cecilia, we care less about trying to impress, and only about remaining independent.”
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. CULT STATUS.
