Johannes Zillinger believes being organic is not a trend but a lifestyle, one that this family has been living for over 35 years. His father Hans turned the family’s estate, founded in the seventeenth century as part of a mixed agriculture farm, to organic in 1983. Located in the community of Velm-Gotzendorf in the wine region of Weinviertel (“wine quarter”), Niederosterreich, Hans is considered to be one of Austria’s pioneers of organic wine. He likes to push boundaries with his winemaking style while also paying homage to single vineyard sites and indigenous varieties that make Austrian wine unique. He even grows his own herbs for tea tinctures to use as treatments in his vineyards.
