Andreas & Martin Nittnaus

Anita and Hans are owner of a winery at the Neusiedlersee in Burgenland, which is Austria’s centre of Red and Sweet wines. They produce wines which are affected by terroir, authentic and full of character in opposition to oak and high alocohol-style, and they embrassed biodynamic agriculture in their vineyards since 2007. Their sons Andreas and Martin are gradually converting part of the cellar to non-additive, natural wines, which represent today 15% of the winery’s production.
