Andreas & Martin Nittnaus

Anita and Hans are the owners of a winery at the Neusiedlersee in Burgenland, which is Austria’s center of red and sweet wines. They produce wines which are affected by terroir, authentic and full of character in opposition to oak and high alcohol-style, and they’ve embraced biodynamic agriculture in their vineyards since 2007. Their sons Andreas and Martin are gradually converting parts of the cellar to non-additive, natural wines, which represent 15% of the winery’s production.
