Brunn is a small family-owned and operated winery in the Kamptal region of Austria, north of the Danube River. The winery is in possession of very old vines that produce low yields, but very high quality grapes. Traditional fermentation is practiced using small tanks and native yeasts. The wines mature in an historic subterranean cellar under ideal conditions.
As a testament to Brunn’s tradition in the region, it is home to one of the oldest traditional basket presses in Europe dating back to 1564 AD. The basket press has never left the village.
Green Grüner Veltliner
This fresh, fruity wine is a keen example of Austria’s most popular white varietal, Grüner Veltliner. It features a hen on the label, which one may take as a suggestion for food pairings.
Zweigelt was created by crossing two native Austrian varietals in 1922. It is one of the most commonly planted grapes in the country today, and this wine, with its rich berry flavors, does it justice. The hare on the label is also a serving suggestion: this Zweigelt pairs well with meat dishes.
