Sämling 2015 in a semi-sweet style. Something new from the Sonnenmulde Winery? Well it is, but not completely - because we have valued Sämling grapes highly for a long time.

Bird-nets to protect our precious grapes.

A fine meal is hopefully followed by a dessert. Just as we are now hoping to pick some great dessert wines after the main harvest has been finished. We’re planning to conclude the season with Icewine and Trockenbeerenauslese to be specific. We have not tried to do both of thes super-sweet dessert wines in the same year for decades, but after this awesome vintage we think there is a great opportunity.

A glass white Spritzer after work on this year’s hottest day yet. 37° C in the shadow made us really looking forward to the predicted wheater change tomorrow. At “only” 30° C we’re almost thinking of breaking out gloves and bobble caps. Anyway, a light Summer-Spritzer is never a bad idea at this hot time of the year. We’re drinking Grüner Veltliner Heideboden 2014, but Riesling or Rosé would be just as good.Read more »

In Spring not only the vines start to blossom (they need a few more weeks anyway), a lot of different plants show their colours too. Walking around with an open eye one can quickly discover all colours neede for our Burgenland state flag. Red-Gold, or Red-Yellow is not that hard to find to be honest. But it is beautiful none the less!
