Sustainable Farming
Winemakers: Peter Schweiger & Son

Weingut Peter Schweiger is a pivotal, family-owned producer based in Zöbing, in the Kamptal region, which along with the Kremstal and Wachau regions is home to Austria’s most famous and highly regarded dry wines. Peter’s eighteen hectares of vineyards are planted to Grüner Veltliner, Riesling and Zweigelt, and are farmed sustainably, by hand.

The REID Zobinger Grüner is an excellent introduction to the joys of the variety: classic spicy, mineral flavours tempered by some upfront stone fruit character.

A signature Austrian red grape, Zweigelt gives an amazingly lively, refreshing, juicy wine that is easier tasted than described. Think somewhere between top Côtes-du-Rhône and cru Beaujolais, but with more depth and “gloss”. It’s winningly delicious, and benefits from being served slightly chilled.
