The vintners present
Wine estate Markowitsch, Göttlesbrunn
As the daughter of the renowned winemaker Gerhard Markowitsch, Johanna Markowitsch was practically born with a love of wine. Alongside her education and after numerous stays abroad, she created a more youthful line to the traditional Markowitsch wines. In 2019, she developed her sparkling and unconventional line “JoMa” with the Halligalli wines. Another highlight is her Mardonna Premium Rosé.
Rudi Pichler Junior
Wine estate Rudi Pichler, Wösendorf
By now, Rudi Jr. Pichler is the 4th generation in the family winery and is about to take over his father’s winery. Like his father, Rudi III, Rudi Jr. can thoroughly identify with the philosophy of pressing authentic, characteristic, and origin-related wines. The most important thing for him is that the site/vineyard comes first: “The characteristics of the soil in the single vineyards should be reflected in the glass!”
Wine estate Wachter Wiesler, Deutsch Schützen
Julia and her brother Christoph’s passion is Blaufränkisch. “Only those who love what they do can go the extra mile it takes. The distance that turns special things into great things.” For the brother and sister, there are things for which it is worth taking an uncompromising stance: Nature, family, friends – and Blaufränkisch: “Yes, we do our thing. And yes, we do it without compromise. Nevertheless, we really have a lot of friends. But maybe that’s exactly why.”
Wine estate Anita and Hans Nittnaus, Gols
Martin Nittnaus is a creative mind and now a passionate winemaker. Before joining his parents’ renowned family winery, he studied media science and literature. Together with his brother Andreas and his cousin Lydia, Martin Nittnaus is dedicated to a more extravagant line of natural wines. “Ultimately, I came to wine through many conversations with friends, colleagues, and my family,” Martin says.
Hansi Reisetbauer Junior
Distillery Reisetbauer, Axberg
Hansi Reisetbauer Junior has schnapps distilling in his genes. He learned the craft from his father, whose business he helped and worked at a young age. After several years of apprenticeship in Vienna, he joined the Reisetbauer company, bringing a breath of fresh air and many new ideas. His first successes are the conversion of conventional farming to organic farming and the first own schnapps edition: Brandstatt. It complements the range of Reisetbauer brandies, and thus Hansi Junior takes the first step toward a family business.
