Fun facts:

  • The Netzl family has lived and farmed in the very same village since 1650
  • Having helped her family with running the mixed farm and vineyards since an early age, Christina knew she wanted to be a winemaker already at the tender age of five
  • Inspired by the quality of the natural wines she discovered while living in London and the birth of her two daughters, Christina decided to turn the whole property organic in 2013 and started her own range of natural wines two years later
  • The labels of the wines are a tribute to the beneficiary insects that inhabit the vineyards where they help manage pests and build soil health and biodiversity
  • The whole family lives and makes wine in the same charming house – a very long building running from the street straight up to the cellar and one of their vineyards!

Climate: The Chardonnay grapes love the perfect conditions of our “Pannonian” climate with the deep and nutritious soils in combination with gravel on the top. As a result, they develop their very intensive and exotic aromatic with some nice acidity on the palate, due to the cooler influences of the River Danube during the nights.

Soil: Gravel and loess

Varieties: Chardonnay

Vinification Method: The grapes are hand-harvested, destemmed, and fermented spontaneously in contact with the skins for 18 days, in stainless steel fermenters. Once pressed, the wine spends 4 months in old vats and stainless steel with full yeast. The wine is booted unfiltered, with light sulfur addition.

PAIRING: aromatic cuisine like Thai curries, grilled fish, lemon roasted chicken.
