Rotgiplfer - Organic Wines

Organic wines mean wine produced with grape grown organically thus without addition of industrial pesticides or herbicides in order to respect nature. No manufactured chemical products will be used and winegrowers need to find alternative solutions such as spraying orange essential oil to repel certain insects, using diversion tactics. It takes more time to care about an organic vineyard as, for example, many actions need to be done manually in order to preserve life in soil and not compact them with a heavy machine going between the rows. 

Rotgipfler, named after the red tips of its vine leaves, is a white grape and is grown principally in Thermenregion, where it has helped to establish the reputation gained by the wines of Gumpoldskirchen.

As well as sweet and dry wines from that region we also have a couple of wines from Wagram. The wines are golden-yellow with a prominent fresh spicy bouquet, are rich and fruity with peach and apricot and often high in alcohol. Has to be tried - a fascinating wine. As with so many of the lesser known grapes of the region it can be made into a refreshing and fruity dry wine but also a sweeter wine from late harvest Spätlese to Trockenbeernauslese. It is most often used in blends, particularly with Zierfandler.

Rotgipfler was first documented around 1840 in Styria although now associated mainly with Gumpoldskirchen in Thermenregion.

Rotgipfler is a natural cross of Traminer and Roter Veltliner, making it a relative of Pinot and all its progeny, particularly the Veltliner grapes.
