In 2007 Peter Wetzer purchased five different vineyards around the town of Sopron, in the northwest part of Hungary. Born into a winemaking family, he was driven to make wines naturally with minimal intervention. Peter works Kékfrankos on five different vineyard sites that add up to 2.5 hectares. He additionally has 1 hectare of furmint vines planted near the Ság volcano, and another hectare of vines from a few different varieties like Pinot Noir.
This is how Erik Mercier of Juice Imports describes the Peter Wetzer Weiss – “Peter was able to get his hands on 0.8ha of Zoldveltlini (Gruner Veltliner) planted in Sopron on pure schist. He kept the winemaking fairly simple, crushing the grapes and then pressing them into tank for fermentation. The wine was racked and bottled by gravity without fining nor filtration.”
