Hohenruppersdorf (Weinviertel DAC) • pratsch.at
What they make: A wide variety of Austrian favorites such as Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Zweigelt and Sauvignon Blanc. Their entire portfolio of wines is organic.
Why I’m partial: Biohof Pratsch caught my attention with one of the best Rieslings I’ve ever had, the Lange Ried. Subsequent tastings of their Grüner Veltliner — Qualitätswein, Weinviertel DAC and the Rotenpüllen — showed that their potential to make bright, zippy and complex white wines is endless. A great starting point to learning about the often-overlooked wines of Austria.
