Notes from the Importer: Ewald and Brigitte Tscheppe's farm ‚Werlitsch‘ has become the synonym for some of the world’s greatest white wines. The farm has come a long way and its early beginnings in the 2000s were far away from easy. At that time Ewald already visited biodynamic farms in different corners of the world and subsequently decided to transition the efforts of his work on biodynamic principles too. Despite the local market raising eyebrows and rarely enjoying this ’non-traditional’ Styrian style he kept going until people from further afield started noticing. The core range are the Sauvignon Chardonnay blends called ‚Ex Vero‘ which are divided further into different expositions of the incredibly steep vineyards surrounding the family’s house. While Ex Vero I comes from the 'least‘ steep vineyards, Ex Vero II and Ex Vero III almost exclusively come from sections of the hill where the vines grow on the poorest parts of the rock where it’s almost impossible to work with any form of tractors or machinery. The so-called 'Opok', a local chalky marl builds the foundation of the hills,
giving the wines its singular character.
