About: In 2006 Markus took over the family winery in Jois, and to this day solely focuses on the varieties that best express this unique terroir. His approach in the vineyards and cellar has shown a 180-degree change over the last 15 years, and today all of his vineyards are certified organic, now gearing towards biodynamic certification in the coming year. Blaufränkisch, undoubtetly Austria's highest quality red terroir grape stands at the centre of Markus Altenburger's work.
A red with dark core, smells of cherry and tastes of berries with well-rounded tannins.
