From the South Styrian Demmerkogel to Burgundy and back again
Eva and Karl Schnabel are two originals. When we visited the likeable Styrians, it became immediately clear to us that this is not about any trends, but about uncompromising sustainability, conscious consumption and, above all, honesty with wine as a cultural asset.
Eva studied economics and Karl agricultural economics, after which they went to Burgundy for two years. Inspired by the practices they learned and their shared love for Pinot Noir, they decided to reactivate their parents' 5ha vineyard on the Demmerkogel in the Sausal and, quite contrary to the Styrian trend, to plant mainly red wine varieties such as Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch and Pinot Noir.
