Johannes Zillinger, born in 1980, joined the small family business in 2000 and immediately made decisive and profound choices. First and foremost, the development of a circular economy: self-grown compost as fertilizer, herbs grown in the vineyards because they are a refuge and habitat for beneficial organisms and because they are bases for extracts used on the farm. And then a great openness to methods as diverse as total or partial amphora fermentation, intercellular fermentation and sulfite-free storage (for NUMEN wines) or the use of the solera method (REVOLUTION). The company certified organic since 1984 in 2013 obtains Demeter certification as a seal of the new way of conceiving the wine but above all the management of the vineyard. In the 350-year-old cellar in the Kellerberg area, where the roots of the vines pierce the vaults of the ceiling, Johannes’ wines rests in old barrels and amphorae, obtaining extraordinary wines, natural but above all of great elegance and longevity, confirming his great talent. A young man who, in full respect of tradition, with almost four hundred years of family history, is a great interpreter of Austrian oenology.
