Made from a unique blend of Pinot Noir and Zweigelt, the Weninger Ponzichter harkens back to a style of wine that would have commonly been found on Austrian and Hungarian dinner tables. The name of the wine itself comes from the old nickname for German speaking winemakers in West Hungary (the old name for Burgenland) who would plant beans between the vines. Hence the name “bean growers”. The grapes for this blend were harvested from biodynamic farmed vines planted in Mittelburgenland (Austria) and Balf / Sopron (Hungary). The wine was fermented naturally with partial carbonic maceration, and aged for 18 months in 40-year-old oak casks.
