Organic

Biodynamic

Wine made from grapes grown organically using natural composting techniques and special preparations of herbal sprays while following the astronomical calendar.


Tasting Notes

A pure, delightful expression of Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt and Roesler. The dark fruit gives nice depth and flavor to this rosé, along with bright acidity and some tannin. Eduard and Stephanie Tscheppe started this wine project in 2007. They see a unique personality in each of their wines and crafted detailed labels to match.

Staff Pick Notes

Wines are much like people, bringing forth their own distinct personalities and energy. Eduard and Stephanie Tscheppe of Gut Oggau, take this idea and truly display that in their productions which all have names and faces associated within their "family" of biodynamically farmed wines. Winifred, a Blaufränkish and Zweigelt- based rosé, has a stunning color that is reminiscent of a summer sunset waving goodbye as you zoom along the coastline. Notes of fiery red wild flowers, tart cranberry, watermelon candies, and all spice are packed in a refreshing, light bodied crushable wine with a touch of tannin and radiant acidity. Winifred is equally approachable, charming, and riveting while leaving her mark on those who make her acquaintance.

Offering some of the best attributes of both its parents, Zweigelt is very resistant to frost (an...
