A Rosé Reimagined: The Artisanal Dance of Grapes by Martin & Anna Arndorfer

History and Pedigree: Nestled in the verdant Kamptal town of Strass, Weingut Martin & Anna Arndorfer stands as a beacon of winemaking innovation and tradition. Martin, a progeny of generations of winemakers, and Anna, daughter of the esteemed Karl Steininger, embarked on a vinous journey enriched by a lineage of viticultural mastery. Their shared childhood, steeped in the lore of the vine and formative experiences with natural winemaking icons, have culminated in a project that intertwines Austrian heritage with a forward-thinking ethos.

Production Highlights: The Vorgeschmack Rosé is a testament to the couple's inventive spirit and reverence for nature. Harnessing the vibrant character of Zweigelt grapes through a meticulous 14-hour skin contact process and infusing the blend with Grüner Veltliner skins for a spicy, tannic twist, this rosé is a deliberate departure from convention. Fermented with native yeasts and aged in a mix of stainless steel and French oak, the wine is a harmonious dialogue between modernity and tradition, underscored by a minimal intervention philosophy.
