Sparkling wine production has a long tradition at the Jurtschitsch Winery. The oldest, historical bottles in the family vinotheque are sparkling wines made by Alwin's great-grandfather. In 2007 we revived this tradition.
After a few trips to the Champagne region, Stefanie and Alwin set off in search of a suitable vineyard in the Kamptal valley and found a Grüner Veltliner vineyard high above Langenlois, at an altitude of almost 400 m, in the village of Mittelberg. The cool temperatures of the site and the resulting long vegetation period produce wines that are perfectly suited to the region. Finesse, elegance and precision are important to us and for this we need a lively acidity structure and slowly developing aromas in the berries. We get both there by cultivating the vineyard with about 50-year-old vines from pruning to harvesting for sparkling wine.
