1 Liter bottle! Another fun and delicious project from sisters Birgit and Katrin Pfneisl. Rather than make wine with their father and uncles who run the well established family estate in Austria, the sisters decided to farm their ancestral vines in Sopron, Hungary. From the outset, their wines contrasted sharply with those of their elders. Organic farming, old vines and wild fermentation, all contribute to the finesse of their wines. They're lighter, prettier, less structured, more aromatic, so we were happy to discover Birgit and Katrin's increasing involvement in the Austrian estate. The Austrian Zweigler is another collaborative project between Blue Danube Wine Co and the Pfneisl sisters, born from the common goal of deepening our relationships with each other and our common love of Austria's dearest red grape, Zweigelt.

From the Pfneisl sisters: We are sisters, farmers and winemakers. Zweigler is the PET NAME for our PEPPERY Zweigelt, Austria's DEAREST red grape. Zweigler comes from our Austrian vineyards. We also make wine in Hungary, like our family did before there was a border. The land is our livelihood. We live to respect and share its gift of wine. In it twinkle the stars and sun, the wildness of nature, the faces of our friends and family and perhaps yours too!
