Koppitsch wines from Burgenland region in Austria
Alexander & Maria Koppitsch started to make wine in 2011, having taken over the vineyards from Alex’s parents. They followed the same respect for nature his parents had for their vines and also adhere to the biodynamic principles of Rudolf Steiner, to craft their broad range of both fun & serious wines available today.
A diverse vineyard near the atmospheric lake Neusiedl
Based by the shores of Lake Neusiedl (Neusiedler See) in Burgenland which straddles the Austrian-Hungarian border, the Koppitsch wines all express a range of terroir across their 6 hectares which range from limestone, clay and sandy soil types. They showcase their terroir in their easy-drinking, fun set of wines ‘Koppitsch Goes Soil’ complete with colourful labels. These Koppitsch wines are designed to be accessible, not too serious and are called Homok, Touch, Ret, Juh and Rosza.
Our Koppitsch wine tip: Our personal wine tip for fun summer afternoons has to be their ‘Pretty Nats’, a Blaufrankisch Rose pet-nat that everyone will enjoy. Depending on the vintage, it usually features delightful bursts of strawberry, rhubarb and cream with a nice squeeze of citrus to keep it fresh.
Koppitsch wines - a combination of fun and high quality winemaking skills
The Koppitsch ‘Perspektive’ range of wines are more precise & structured examples of their winemaking capabilities and expressions of terroir. It’s refreshing to see winemakers like Alexander & Maria Koppitsch make both easy-drinking, fun wines as well as wines that showcase a strong sense of place, and excellent winemaking skills.
