Weingut Tement is a family winery in Austria. The vineyards are located in Südsteiermark (southern Styria) directly on the border with Slovenia, on a narrow plateau into which the slope of the Zieregg cru gently flattens. Armin and his father Manfred, who founded the estate in 1979, handcraft some of the most highly awarded Austrian wines. The farming is certified Organic by Lacon. All fermentation is naturally occurring from indigenous yeasts and all wines are aged on the lees without sulphur. The crus are bottled without finings and filtrations.  Their Sauvignon Blanc was the first to receive a rating of 20/20 points by René Gabriel and the Zieregg Sauvignon Blanc is always in the TOP TEN of the best wines Austria. 

This Sauvignon Blanc is the most important wine at the winery and comes from the main harvest of the best Sauvignon vineyards such as Zieregg, Grassnitzberg, Sernau, Hochkittenberg, Eckberg, Wielitsch, Sulztal, Ottenberg and Kranachberg. A lower yield in combination with optimal vineyard management ensure high physiological ripeness of the grapes.
