Description

VITICULTURE

Zahel is a Demeter-certified biodynamic estate in Vienna, Austria. They are the only producer to make wine from 100% Orangetaube: a white grape varietal grown in Germany and Austria, though it is usually part of a field blend, particularly the unique Gemischter Satz wines of Vienna. Orangetraube has been a part of Zahel’s Gemischter Satz field blends since the winery began in 1930, but in 1966 Karl Georg Zahel isolated the varietal in his vineyard. He noticed that Orangetraube gave his Gemischter Satz a unique quality and hoped to highlight the obscure grape as a mono-varietal wine. Two generations later, Zahel is still the only Austrian winery that produces a 100% Orangetraube.
