Christian Tschida is one of the leading lights of Austria’s burgeoning natural wine movement. From his family’s beautiful vineyards near Lake Neusiedlersee in Burgenland he crafts some of the unique wines in the country. They are marked by soaring aromas, crazy textures and real finesse. To drink a bottle of Tschida is an unforgettable experience.
Christian ferments all of his wines in closed top tanks that sit outside in the shade, in which the grapes are foot stomped. After which the juice is moved inside to barrel for aging. As of the 2015 vintage, all of Christian’s wines are made without any additions of sulfur. The wines are never racked, and everything is bottled by hand to preserve the freshness of the wine and leave a little residual carbon dioxide to aid preservation.
