  • Blanc de Blancs Brut (Champagne method), 12% alc., White Dry Sparkling The base wine for this Blanc de Blancs is derived from three different varieties (Grüner Veltliner, Welschriesling and Chardonnay) selected from different sites close to the estate. The grapes are hand-picked at the right grade of ripeness, laid in small boxes, immediately transported to the winery and gently processed. Only the core of the pressing is used for the first fermentation. The base wine matures for six month in oak casks. Then the wine is bottled for the second fermentation. It rests for three years on the lees, which contributes to the creamy texture, it is hand riddled and then degorged.

  • Cuvee Bertrand 2013, 13% alc., Red Dry, medium body Abbot father Bertrand Baumann used to be responsible for the winery between 1958 and 1980 and played a major part in the development of the winery. In his days he belonged to the leading winemakers of Austria. The wines from the library are still documenting this period. This cuvée of Pinot Noir, St. Laurent and Zweigelt is dedicated to the memory of his achievements. An animal edge at the beginning, but with air, the wine quickly opens and is very harmonious.
