Weingut Sepp-Moser, Austria – Niki Moser

April 21, 2012

We produce wines in our two estates in the regions Kremstal and Neusiedlersee with the aim to show as much as possible regional character and individuality. That’s why some years ago I decided to convert to biodynamic viticulture.

Our vineyards are mostly terraced and are composed of loess and conglomerate soils, are mainly south-facing, and are planted with white varietals. Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, and even the red Blauburgunder (Pinot noir), are cultivated on an area of 24 ha (60 acres).

It is sometimes a stony path that we take but I wouldn’t like to take a different one anymore. The skepticism of other wine-growers about how we work was a problem at first. They thought that I was, and some still think I am, a crazy and esoteric guy (maybe I am a bit crazy but not so much esoteric in the way as it’s seen today). We really had to learn everything from scratch, but I would rather find another job than to switch back to conventional wine-growing. Biodynamic agriculture (not only viticulture) is the future!
