Franz & Christine Netzl
The Netzl family produces some stellar reds.
Weingut Netzl grow their grapes on 26 hectares of land with a focus on Zweigelt. The grapes are all hand harvested and individually selected almost berry by berry - heroic winemaking indeed.
The reds, which make up for 75% of production are aged in barriques while the whites are generally aged in stainless steel. Lees aging and malolactic fermentation are also encouraged here and careful thought it put into the aging process.
All this work shines through in the bottle, especially in our mature vintages!
The winery is run by the family. Christine and Franz, the winemakers, are the second generation, while their children, Christina, Ann-Marie and Peter are the third.
