Lichtenberger González

Wines grown at the "end of the world": ancient vineyards, between cooling forests, a hot east, a calming lake and the soil mixes from pure limestone to slate. A couple finds their paradise.

Lichtenberger González: Expressive natural wines

From the very beginning, the young Austrian-Spanish couple Lichtenberger González was clear that they wanted to produce natural wines of the highest quality. And this under the maxim that every wine should be given the time it needs to become as nature intended.

Adriana and Martin more than live up to this claim thanks to their experiences from studies and wineries around the globe, the special climatic soil-geological conditions of their sites and, last but not least, the magic that this winemaker-love affair quite obviously carries within itself.

With Blaufränkisch, Neuburger, Grüner Veltliner and Weißburgunder, the winery uses only autochthonous (=local) grape varieties out of conviction. All organic, handcrafted and with a lot of passion, special natural wines are created here, all of which are bottled after spontaneous fermentation, without filtration or fining and with minimal use of sulphur.

The results are great, terroir-driven and profound natural wines with an elegantly integrated acidity and a grippy structure. You notice immediately that Adriana and Martin are masters of elevage, a term that refers to the maturation and process of winemaking from fermentation to bottling.

From Burgenland to California and back to the "end of the world".

This said end of the world, as Adriana and Martin call it themselves, is in Burgenland. In Breitenbrunn, to be precise. A truly exceptional place between the Leithagebirge and Lake Neusiedl. In addition to the microclimate, the vineyards here also grow on a special soil composition that provides excellent conditions for superior viticulture. And Adriana and Martin do just that. But this special Austrian-Spanish love affair started somewhere else.

Adriana González, whose home is Galicia, Spain, and Martin Lichtenberger, from Burgenland, met during an internship abroad in Sonoma, California. There they were hit by Armor's arrow and decided to realise their dream of owning their own winery in Martin's home town of Breitenbrunn.

"Winemaking is such an old craft that it no longer needs any innovation. Everything, really everything, that is good about it has long been invented. Much of it already forgotten. Even more buried and much, suppressed by the pursuit of maximum profit and greatest complaisance. So don't expect us to be on the same highway as most.

On the contrary. We amble along at a snail's pace on byways, making our wines slowly and patiently by hand, the way they have always been made. Spontaneous fermentation, in wood, long on the yeast and with minimal intervention. Nature herself knows quite well what she wants and does not need any certificates to be completely herself. Just like us"
