Scheiblhofer wein

The Scheiblhofer is one the largest wineries in Andau village in Burgenland, the easternmost State of Austria. In this exclusive area, where the sun shines bright, a wide range of excellent wines are produced. High temperature and rich soil are the ideal conditions for an abundant growth of exceptional ripe grapes.

The Scheiblhofer collection is very unique. They are full-bodied wines, characterized by high aroma and splendid tasting. The three most representative collections of the company are: Big John, Perfection and Jois, a singular trilogy in Burgenland.

Big Joh is the legendary pioneer red wine. It is a dense ruby red, famous for the mixture of fruit scents and delicious aroma of caramel, powerful tannin and with oak roasted flavor. Its label is inimitable; there is a great bustard in it, a representative image for Andau community, as it is the only place in the world where great bustards are native. We tasted Big John, a blend of zweigelt, cabernet sauvignon and pinot noir it and loved it immediately for its strong nose, its bold character and its long aftertaste.

Perfection collection includes Shiraz, Legends, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, all dark ruby reds, full-bodied varieties perfect to be paired with red meat.

Jois is a 30 year old vine. The typical cherry fruit with the combination of strong acidity makes the wine refreshing and explosive at the same time.

Sauvignon Blanc 2014 is produced by the well-known Weingut Aigner wine estate, placed in the Austrian city Krems. Today Wolfgang Aigner manages the company, whose tradition and values have been passed on nine generations, since the beginning of the 18th century. The company produces around 60,000 bottles of wine every year.

The winery also offers a guesthouse opened in 1999, where you can use leisure facilities, take part to winery tours, wine tastings and even watch or participate in the grape harvest.

Sauvignon Blanc 2014 is a really high quality white wine, made by the typical Aigner style. Aigner wines are strong in aroma, but also fresh and fruity, as Sauvignon Blanc. A crispy, zesty, medium-bodied white wine.

We really have appreciated its exceptional charming characteristic, flower aroma, and herbaceous tones. Its savory taste is made of medium acidity, very profound at the same time, with a great aftertaste.

Due to the wine herbal fragrances, it is ideal to join with similar green herbs, as parsley, rosemary, basil, coriander or mint. Perfect food pairings are white meats, seafood, cheese and vegetables too.

Riesling Kremstal DAC Weinzierlberg 2014 trocken is a fantastic white riesling with lemon notes, long, persistent with body and elegance. The way how this winemaker goes at work for this riesling is fantastic. You’ll be experiencing an exceptional moment while tasting this riesling.

Musico montalcino

Martini family is one of the most renowned and oldest family in Montalcino city, in Tuscany. Love and passion for winery and wine production have been passed down from one generation to another.

Most of the family members were farmer and they worked in their vineyards and in Maremma region too. One of the most esteemed farmer was Renato Martini, whose abilities and manual skills were really appreciated by land owners.

In 1980, the business man Giovanni Martini, deeply interested in viniculture decided to buy some vineyards, becoming a major producer of wine. His son, Guido Martini, inherited the enterprise from the father and he tried to keep family tradition in his production.

The annual production it’s around 5,000 bottles of Brunello, 3,000 of  Rosso di Montalcino and 2,000 of IGT. In addiction the winery also produces 1,000 bottles of olive oil and the Brunello Grappa.

The wines produced are of excellent quality, labels of bottles are made of a personalized design, very attractive for buyers. Wines are mainly created thanks to fermentation of Sangiovese grape, the most widely planted grape variety in Italy.

We have been charmed by the Brunello di Montalcino which is a very balanced wine, not too strong, with a fantastic expression of the san giovese. A wine, first of all very elegant with silk tannins, a perfect acidity and a lovely aftertaste.

Felix Callejo, a winery in the heart of Spain #wine #Spain #winery

floresdecallejo01Felix Callejo was born in Sotillo de la Ribera, Spain, in a family with a long tradition in the world of wine. He had always dreamed on elaborating his own wine and in 1989 he achieved his goal with success.

Since 1999 he takes care of the technical management of the winery, the vineyard and the winemaking process.

The vineyard, that is exclusively Tempranillo is situated in Sotillo de la Ribera, in the province of Burgos. The high altitude is the responsibñe for large temperature contrasts which improve the maturity of the grapes. Moreover, the variety of soils that are found in the vineyard gives their wines a wealth of nuances.

The main feature in their winemaking process is based on the use of indigenous yeasts and once the fermentation is finished, wines gain complexity in exclusively French oak barrels.

Flores de Callejo 2013, one of their most famous wine, is a red wine very aromatic with marked notes of berries. It is 100% Tempranillo and it is kept 6 months in barrel.
