Weingut Andert


Austrian viticulture, after a dark period, found a second wind from the 1990s with winegrowers committed to producing grapes (organic cultivation, biodynamics) and living wines. The estate of the Andert brothers, in Burgenland, testifies to this requirement without the slightest concession: true purists.
Located in eastern Austria in Burgenland on the eastern shore of Lake Neusiedl (Neusiedlersee), the Andert family estate covers 10 ha, including 4.5 ha of vines, the rest being devoted to horticulture and animal farming. The first wines of Michael – who trained with Sepp Moser, a renowned winemaker – and Erich Andert date from 1998, and from the beginning of the 2000s they opted for biodynamics and permaculture, with no other treatments than plant extracts (phytotherapy), without even sulfur and copper in the vines since 2014. In addition to the classic white grape varieties of the region, they show a predilection for Zweigelt, a typically Austrian red grape variety, of which they give a particularly pure and straightforward version that perfectly reflects their philosophy of work.
