Where & How?
From biodynamically farmed parcels of St. Laurent, Zweigelt, Rösler and Blaufränkisch in the Burgenland region of Austria.
As some batches of their Waiting for Tom rosé turned out a little darker than usual, they used the wine to create a new red wine. Light maceration periods took place of between 8 days and two weeks, with a small percentage of whole bunches. Aged in old barrels and foudres for eight months, then bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Stefanie and Susanne Renner, from the Burgenland, Austria, are a force to be reckoned with. With just five vintages under their belt, they’re already considered one of the most dynamic duos of new wave Austria. Throughout global history, it has so often been a son who takes over the family estate, and it is often the man's name found on the label. But history is changing. In the case of the Renner family, it was the middle sibling – Stefanie – who took the winemaking reins by doing internships abroad at the likes of Matassa, Shobbrook and JH Meyer Wines. Since 2015, Stefanie and her older sibling Susanne have managed the farming and winemaking, converting to biodynamics slowly. In doing so, they have noticed that their vineyards have become more balanced, thus better able to deal with extreme climate conditions. Susanne explains,
“If your soils aren’t healthy; if they’re unstable or unbalanced, then extreme weather conditions harm the whole system a lot more. That’s the main idea of our farming - to allow the plant to be able to adapt to all of the extremes.” Late last year, their youngest sibling and only brother, Georg, quit his technology job and decided to join his sistas. Now it it’s a dynamic family trio. Will a RennerBrotha cuvée join the stable? Time will tell.
