Arndorfer Zweigelt 1L
Both Martin Arndorfer and his wife Anna Steininger come from long lines of Austrian winemakers. Martin tried to play sick from Kindergarten because he preferred to stay in the vineyard with his mother. At the age of 12 he truly fell in love with winemaking. Anna started even younger. She was basically “born in the cellar” and had been helping the family vineyards since she could walk. Martin spent years working in Italy’s Piedmont and Anna continued working for her father Karl Steininger.
Martin and Anna began their own project In Austria’s Kamptal region. Their vineyards are worked sustainably. There is minimal intervention in the cellar, but Martin has a passion for barriques that sets him apart in Austria. He believes that you shouldn’t taste the wood too much, however. He uses oak “atmospherically.” It’s meant to make the wine comfortable and deepen the character it already has. Martin and Anna believe wine is for pleasure and fun. Put a chill on this gorgeous liter of juicy Zweigelt to recreate that feeling!
