At Rebenhof, one is committed to non-conformity
At the top of the wine road with a picturesque view of the southern Styrian-Slovenian wine country lies Hartmut Aubell's Rebenhof, which he has been making wine since 2008 and converted to biodynamic farming in 2013 - the first Demeter vintage followed in 2016.
Hartmut is committed to non-conformity and does not allow himself to be restricted by wine law or any certifications, he is a free thinker - for him there is only one way to make wine and you become aware of that with every sip. At the Rebenhof, one works with feeling: precisely, carefully and with manual labour, in a sense it is a retro winery.
It has always been his vision to work with older vine material - a philosophy that he was able to learn during various internships at renowned wineries such as Chateau Hermitage in Bordeaux, Forstmeister Geltz-Zilliken on the Saar or Emmerich Knoll in the Wachau.
