with Stephanie & Eduard Tscheppe-Eselböck (Gut Oggau) Grower & Maker


"We’re tired of endlessly talking about the same thing”, said Eduard on a recent call with team Alive!. “All people ever seem to ask about is winemaking - about sulfites, about fining or filtration. It is basically the same emphasis on the cellar that the conventional wine world is all about. Natural wine isn’t that. Natural wine is all about farming, so Stephanie and I would like to invite people to ask questions they’ve never asked before, about biodynamics, farming, natural wine and life in general”.

Join the cult natural wine growing & making duo for a thought-provoking interchange on issues that go beyond fermented juice in a bottle. Find out, for example, what biodynamic preparations are, how they’re used and how they work? And why they think it took several years before their plants really began expressing a sense of place? Or even why & how the way they live mirrors their work with their plants...

Grower & Maker

In 2007, Stephanie and Eduard took over an old-established property in Oggau that has a long standing tradition. The 18 hectares of vineyards are cultivated using biodynamics. The results are choice wines with character that need attention. Wines you only get to know by coming closer, much like a person.
