A Wine That
spans the legacy of 3 generations of the Tscheppe family. Vines planted by the grandfather, nurtured by Andreas Sen. Tscheppe and brought to full potential by Ewald who calls this very old field blend a personal favourite year after year. Contrary to most of his Sauvignon and Chardonnay blends this hosts a set of varieties including old-vines of the native Styrian grape Welschriesling.

Where and How?
Situated in the steep Styrian hills a few minutes away from the border with Slovenia. The vineyards are some of the oldest in the family, grown on the signature limestone-rich Opok soils.
The Winemaker: Werlitsch
Ewald Tscheppe of Werlitsch is a winemaker who ditched the security of producing simple, easy-to-sell, “drink now, not for ageing” Sauvignon Blancs and Chardonnays. Inspired by the likes of Marcel Deiss, Gravner and Radikon, Ewald set out to see what his Styrian soils might be able to produce if given the chance. By throwing convention out of the window and by following an inert belief that biodynamic farming is the way forward, Ewald and his friends’ wines have changed how Styria is perceived.
They are wines of haunting aromas that age more impressively than most white Burgundies. They may be serious, fine wines, but they are in no way rigid or strict. Instead, they emanate good vibes and drinkability; testament to healthy farming and healthy wines. By giving the wines time and by not putting them into tight clothes by over-sulphuring them, he allows them to be true to themselves and to their place."
