Gut Oggau Cecilia
Created by Eduard and Stephanie Tscheppe in 2007, Gut Oggau is a leader in the movement towards sustanable and natural winemaking in Austria's Burgenland wine region. Working with vines that haven't seen pesticides or chemical treatments for over 20 years, they are able to bottle wines with incredible life and vigour. The Atanasius is a blend of Zweigelt and Blaunfrankisch. The wine was vinified in used 500, and 1200-liter barrels, and the juice spent about 3 weeks in contact with the skins. Ageing occurred in the same barrels for 12 months.
Eduard and Stephanie on this wine: “Meet Cecilia, the new family member! You see her, you taste her, you feel her, she inspires you. She doesn’t care about conventions, and won’t be put in a box. She shows you that it’s good to be a little bit different. Mixed in white and red, rooted on limestone she shines bright and proves there’s much more beyond the defined categories. A lover of horses, her soil releases distinct character; we know this is only the start of a beautiful journey we’ll share together. A journey into being one’s true self, without any pretension. Together with Cecilia, we care less about trying to impress, and only about remaining independent.”
