      The style here tends to be on the more juicy and snappy side of the variety. This is an easy drinking red wine that’s a delicious and quaffable, but full of character. Perfect with pizza or roast chicken.

      ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

      The Hofer family farms vineyards in Auersthal, a dead-still little wine village in the Weinviertel, just barely beyond Vienna’s northern suburbs. Hermann and his wife Maria, along with their three children, Julia, Florian, and Sebastien tend to the vines and cellar and run a small Heuriger at the estate. The gently rolling hills in this village are made up of deep loess soils and are planted predominantly to Grüner Veltliner, in addition to some Zweigelt and riesling. Additionally, the Hofer’s grow organic grains; rye, barley, and alfalfa. These grains are raised for consumption and are used as cover-crops in their vineyards.

      There was a time when only a small amount of wine was produced at the farm of Hermann Hofer’s parents, but the quality was worthy enough to motivate Hermann to increase production and begin making top-quality wine. Hofer has been making wine since the early 1980s and has been certified organic since 2001 by the group Bio-Ernte, whose standards exceed EU guidelines for organic grape growing. The Hofer family is now farming bio-dynamically and plans to certify within the next few years.

      It is rare to find such high quality wines farmed with such attention and responsibility, especially in the Weinvertel, Austria’s largest growing region and home to many commodity-wine producers. In the cellars at Hofer grapes are de-stemmed, macerated for only a short time, and then vinified in stainless steel with the goals of typicity and freshness in mind.
