Pork tenderloinChickenPasta with Tomato Sauce
Gut Oggau is a biodynamic wine estate in Oggau, Burgenland, Austria owned and operated by Eduard Tscheppe and Stephanie Tscheppe-Eselböck. Edward grew up making wine with his father and Stephanie’s family have a Michelin star restaurant. In 2007 the couple focused their energies into reviving a dilapidated winery, including a 200 year old screw press and abandoned vineyards. Their approach was to farm according to organic and biodynamic principles from the beginning and the results are impressive and their wines have garnered a cult-like following amongst natural wine lovers worldwide.
Black cherry, some smokey notes, baking spice, thyme. The palate has juicy acidity and soft easy tannins.
The Maskerade wines are made from some newer vineyards Stefanie and Eduard acquired, that they are in the process of converting to biodynamics. They are all in liter bottles. The wines are field blends (a variety of grapes). The Maskerade Rot vineyard is on top of the hill with east-facing exposure and limestone and slate soil.
Partly skin-fermented, partly direct-pressed. Blended and spontaneously fermented and then aged in bigger wooden barrels. The wine is bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with zero addition of sulfur.
