Sepp Moser – Hedwighof – Zweigelt – 2018
Just a couple of hundred meters away from Austria’s lowest point of altitude, on the banks of Lake Neusiedl, the Hedwighof vineyard’s high proportion of old vines, gravelly subsoil, and position atop an ancient seabed leads to bright and complex fruit flavors and lovely salinity.
Zweigelt, a cross between St. Laurent and Blaufrankisch is Austria’s most plant red grape and yields wines that are bright, fruity and a little tart.
Vine Age 7-48yrs
Soil Humus, Gravel
Farming Practices Certified Biodynamic

The estate was founded by Sepp Moser, a 15th generation winemaker from the venerated Moser clan in 1986. The focus of his then new estate was on the production of small-lot, high-quality wines. Success followed and in 2000 Sepp ceded day-to-day control of the winery to his son Nikolaus who began the vineyard conversion first to organic and then to biodynamic, achieving Demeter certification in 2009.
The estate began their transition to biodynamics in 2002 and were certified by Demeter in 2006. Simultaneously they were certified organic by Bioland in 2004. A large portion of the soil and vine preparations are sourced from within the estate.
