During harvest, all grapes are processed in the backyard.
Whole bunches go straight into the screw press without additives or temperature control.
The juice then goes straight into stainless steel, large acacia barrels, oak barrels (2000L) and fibreglass tanks where it ferments naturally.
All 3 components of HOMOK (Grüner + Weissburgunder + Sauvignon Blanc) were matured together on the lees for 6-7 months.
Bottled unfined, unfiltered without the addition of sulphur.
The Koppitsch family have been making low intervention wines in the region of Neusiedl am See for 500 years, a winemaking region that overlooks a grand lake and features on all the labels of their bottles.
Alex and his father work biodynamically, implementing natural techniques such as camomile treatments during the growing season.
The winery is part of their family home where Maria and their three young
children are all involved in the process of winemaking and harvest.
With special attention towards carbon emissions, their wines are packaged with as much care as possible to protect the planet.
Lightweight bottles, recycled cardboard boxes and choosing to skip excess materials,
such as foils to reduce wastage and pollution.
