Grape: Grüner Veltliner

Place: Weinviertel, Austria

Named Buteo (buzzard) after the birds on Michael's farm, this is Grüner with a few hours of skin contact, giving it some nice texture. Complex, rich, and fascinating, this is a tightly woven wine with a clear-cut structure, electric citrus fruit, grass and minerality.  

Michael began making wine at his family's estate while attending agricultural school in his teens.  Now, at 33 years old, he's one of the most progressive winemakers in Austria.  Inspired by the wines of his grandfather, which were made with no manipulation or intervention, he converted his winery and vineyards to Demeter-certified biodynamic farming in 2014, transforming the estate into a fully functioning biodynamic farm complete with highland cattle, goats, wheat, vegetables and fruits.  He even harvests his own acacia and oak trees to make his barrels.
