Birgit Braunstein lives in the village of Purbach in Austria, in the Burgenland region.  She comes from a winemaking family dating back to the 17th century.  Though 1996 was the first vintage under her own name. Since 2000, she has been farming according to biodynamic principles. Most vineyards are located on, or close to, Leithaberg, a few hundred meters above sea level and a relatively high altitude compared to other vineyards in Burgenland.  The soils are predominantly slate and limestone.   She crafts elegant and pure wines that fall under the “natural” wine category yet are very clean showing no signs of oxidation, volatile acidity, brettanomyces or those “funky” elements often found in “natural wines”.  (Not that there is anything wrong with intentional funky notes; simply another style).    

This sparkling wine is made in the method ancestral style, it is a petillant naturel, where the wine is bottled before fermentation finishes thus trapping the CO2 in the bottle as well as yeast lees (which are not removed as they are in Champagne Method).
