Christian Tschida was and is ahead of his time

Christian is what one would commonly call an "original". A free spirit, a visionary and, with his band T-shirts and leather jacket, simply a casual yet down-to-earth guy. Actually, he wanted to become an artist, but his passion for wine was greater. But somehow art came into being. 

At a time when everyone wanted to drink massive barrique bombs, Christian Tschida developed a quasi-opposite but visionary style: delicate, moderate alcohol levels and free of additives. Today, in a time marked by a development towards refinement in wine, Christian Tschida is considered a superstar. He succeeds in balancing power and elegance with low alcohol levels in a way that is unparalleled.

"The positive energy of wine comes from a healthy soil, above is cosmetic!" - Christian Tschida

The Austrian broke out of the then still very conservative viticulture of the Burgenland with his way of thinking. He is very much concerned with the question of which balance of "intervening" and "letting things run their course" leads to the most perfect wines. Again and again, the term "laissez-faire" appears in his work - including the name of one of his wines - which, after years, can clearly be seen as an answer to the question.

The quality of the wines is created in the vineyard, in the cellar Christian Tschida then gives his wines plenty of time to bring themselves into balance. For some years now, he has even completely dispensed with the addition of sulphur.

"Whether I believe in the phases of the moon or not, the wine certainly does," Tschida says.
