Herbert Zillinger studied winemaking at Klosterneuberg and then did the WSET course at Rust, presumably giving him a fairly cosmopolitan outlook on wine in preparation for starting work at the family seven-hectare wine estate in the Weinviertel at the tender age of 20 in 1998.
He and his speech-therapist wife Carmen have been in charge of the estate since 2005, redesigning the bottles and website in 2013. They have since grown their vineyard holdings to 12 hectares and completed certified conversion to organic viticulture last year. Like many of his contemporaries, he has been returning to the more traditional methods of winemaking of his grandparents, and his Horizont Grüner Veltliner 2015 was voted best organic wine in Germany, Austria and Switzerland by Best of Bio Wine 2016
This label made of 100% Gruner Veltliner showcases ripe fruits, bright and well rounded acidity. Pepper corns and spice notes come thru on the palette complimented by the array of citrus fruits. We love it!
