  • Ewald Tscheppe took on the family vineyards around their house in Südsteiermark, where lines of gnarled vines arc their way back towards the 'Opok' soils (a compressed mixture of marl and clay). Although the terrain and training of the vineyards looks incredibly different from those of his brother, Andreas Tscheppe, the work in the cellar is fairly congruent: grapes are hand harvested, de-stemmed and directly pressed, the must spontaneously ferments, and the wine ages in old barrels (from 300 to 3000L in size) for 18 months, with no sulfur added at any time. The 'vom Opok' line of wines are sourced from further down the hillside, with vines around 30 years of age. 100% Sauvignon Blanc boasting bright flavors of tangerine oil, sour oranges, peach yogurt, yellow apple, apricot, just underripe red cherries, marjoram, vibrant balance with pleasing texture
