SCHMECKE DAS LEBEN
Live with nature, study it, learn from the land
Schmecke das Leben meaning “taste the life” - is a group of five Styrian winemakers in Austria united by a collective vision - to provide a respectful and sustainable interaction with the earth and vines to produce lively wines that really express their origins. Consisting of producers Werlitsch, Tauss, Tscheppe, Strohmeier and Muster, each one consistently shares their experiences with each other in order to enrich their collective knowledge.
Schmecke das Leben - Making "living" wine - wine with soul
Careful handling of the vines and consideration of the symbiosis of animals and plants are of utmost importance; each vineyard is teeming with beneficial wildlife to promote healthy and vital vines. After harvest, the wines are stored and allowed to develop on their own time with minimal intervention, “allowing wine making itself in its own timeframe”. The wines themselves are incredibly structured, with a long lasting finish and a spectrum of aromas, making them an ideal accompaniment to meals. These are fine and often highly sought after, rare wines of the natural wine world . made with love, passion and nature.
