Peter Wetzer Kekfrankos
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 wine is made from grapes harvested from vineyards around Sopron on the Austrian border. The vines are over thirty years old and are grown on a mixture of soils including schist, loam, limestone and loess. Known as Blaufränkisch in Austria, Kékfrankos produces wines with rich black fruit, peppery spice, and lean acidity.
