Grapes are selected from the best vineyard sides in the village and express the divercity and complexity of the origin.

Notes Because of our experience that nature is the strongest force, we’d love to work with it. With the knowledge that the soil is the most intelligent part we deal with, we‘ve decided to trust in it. We are convinced that the plants nourish our soil, therefore we let them grow. With these ideas and confidence we don‘t interact in the cellar, which causes that our wines transport the natural taste of the grape. These decisions we make by ourselves and let our personalities speak in our wines. We think that winemakers can be artisans, or even artists. Their work requires creativity, sensitivity and an enormous amount of personality. Everything you would attribute to an artist..... We have made it our task to produce wines that unite origin and passion, wines that arouse curiosity in the wine world across the globe. - martin & anna arndorfer
