– The Winemaker –
A Decathlete among Winemakers.
T"he vineyard site determines the choice of the grape variety. This is the guiding belief of Andi Kollwentz. Given such ideal conditions, the vines are able to produce grapes of optimal ripeness, the basis for great wines.
Editor Peter Moser of Falstaff Magazine adds to this, Andi Kollwentz is the decathlete among Austria’s winegrowers; I say this because he has mastered the greatest diversity of ‘events,’ and figures in the upper echelon of every category, whether white, red or nobly sweet. Andi Kollwentz took over responsibility for the cellar with the 1993 vintage. Since 2004, Andi and Heidi Kollwentz lead the estate with vision and focus.
