The Winemaker

The Wachter-Wiesler wines saw a radical change in style when Christoph took the winemaking reins from his parents, but instead of becoming more radically affected by the winemaking, the opposite occurred; the wines became more subtle and dialled-in to their source—the vineyards. The hand of the human stepped back and instead the voice of the fruit itself became louder. ⁣⁣
​⁣⁣
Today, the Blaufränkisch wines they produce are amongst the most nuanced versions found in Austria; they compete with the famed ability of Pinot Noir to express their site. As for the 15% white grapes that they work with—this cellar has become home to some of the most thrilling examples of Welschriesling since they flipped their way of thinking.⁣⁣
​⁣⁣
Most importantly of all, the domaine has led by example with regards to healthy viticulture. The soils thrive and the cover crop & wildflowers bloom throughout the year, providing homes and food for a swathe of beneficial insects. The change has been so positive than Christoph hasn’t noticed herbicide use by other growers in the area for two years; a giant step in the world of Sudburgenland’s vineyards.⁣⁣
