Ewald Tscheppe

Ewald Tscheppe owns a biodynamic farm and winery in Styria, Austria where he has been producing wine since he was 26. The region is covered by steep hills and some places cannot be accessed by tractors or other machines. As a result, he does most of the work in the vineyards by hand. He also is one of the first producers to bring forward biodynamic techniques in the area and is dedicated to create complex and expressive natural wines. While he predominantly uses Sauvignon Blanc, Welshriesling and Morillon, a local variety of Chardonnay, his vines grow on different soils at different elevations which allows him to create diverse wines.
