Georg Hugl produces sparkling wines using the traditional methode since 1979 together with his wife Barbara. Their winery in Stützenhofen is situated in the north of the Weinviertel Region. Nowadays the oldest children, Christina & Daniel are working in the family owend winery as well. They both inspire the winery with new ideas.
“We do not want to imitate anything, we want to produce our own products using regional grape varietes.”
To reflect the typical character of the Weinviertel, it takes a lot of know-how and experience and a lot of time. The perfect basewine is low in alcohol but high in acidity. By harvesting the grapes slightly later than usual, the basewine gets a unique bouquet which allows the second fermentation to involve a distinctive character, that does not ask for any other ingredients.
