                    Christoph Wachter began working at his family winery in 2008 when he was just 20 years old. He took over full responsibility in 2010, and now farms 14 hectares of vineyards in Südburgenland, in the towns of Eisenberg and Deutsch Schützen.

                    The biggest difference between Burgenland and Südburgenland is the soil. In Mittelburgenland, the area was under the ancient Pannonian sea and the soil is mostly limestone. In Südburgenland, the vines grow in primary rock, and the most prized terroir is the green schist of the Eisenberg hill, regarded as one of the finest sites for producing Blaufränkisch in Austria, producing wines of great finesse and focus. The Eisenberg DAC was extended to include wines from the surrounding villages, including Deutsch-Schutzen, where you find iron rich loam. Deutsch-Schützen’s soils, while similar, are denser with a deeper layer of loam, resulting in darker spicier wines with softer tannins. Südburgenland is cooler than Mittelburgenland and there are rolling hillsides, small mountains really, called the pre-Alps, topped with forest; this regulates the temperature, another aspect of the micro-climate of Südburgenland. Harvest here tends to start two weeks after Mittelburgenland.

                    When Christoph started in 2010, he stopped using herbicides and pesticides entirely. Today, Christoph is one of only three producers in Südburgenland who is farming organically. He allows the weeds to grow in his vineyards, as they attract beneficial insects and eventually return to the soil as nutrients themselves. Rather than add fertilizer, he leaves the vines to extract what they need from the soil itself, thus instilling the wines with minerality and allowing them to express their unique terroir.

                    Only native yeasts are used in the cellar. Christoph uses upwards of 20-30% whole-cluster, and ages in large barrels that allow the wines to mature gracefully without obscuring them with oak flavors. The resulting wines are incredibly elegant, expressive, superlative expressions of Blaufränkisch that should age well, though they are drinking well right now. We are excited by the Wachter-Wiesler wines with each new vintage release. The Wachter-Wiesler wines always have a characteristic silky texture, floral aromatics and elegance: truly Blaufränkisch at its finest.
