This Grüner Veltliner is here for uncomplicated drinking and fun. Easygoing refreshing packed with fresh apples, pears with a hint of yellow flowers.

“Velue” is the old name for Velm – the name of the vilage. and the willow trees growing there along the creek. The Velue wines are natural, spontaneously fermented and aged in steel tanks and offer immediate enjoyment. The Velue-Veltliner comes from the first harvest crossing of our vineyards around the village Velm-Götzendorf. The grapes are harvested by hand and selected. After a short maceration period, it is spontaneously fermented in a steel tank at 21-24 ° C. Short maceration, slow gentle pressing over 5 hours, spontaneously fermented & spontaneous malolactic; 3 months full yeast matured with occasional battonage.

Johannes Zillinger learned early on from his father about the craft of organic winemaking, about viewing the vineyard as a habitat and protecting the environment instead of poisoning it. His father Hans turned to organic viticulture in 1983 and was one of its pioneers in Austria. His wines are certified Demeter biodynamic, and Johannes believes wholeheartedly in the philosophy of biodynamic farming. He grows his own herbs for tea tinctures to use as treatments in his vineyards. The wines are all spontaneously fermented, lightly filtered, and minimally sulfured only at bottling. These are impeccably made wines with precision, structure, and balance no matter the vintage or cuvee. They are also absolutely delicious.
