After careful bunch selection in the vineyards, the juice is left to mingle with the skins for 72 hours. Fermentation takes place in stoneware, followed by a year-long ageing period with plenty of air in a small, used barrel. Unfiltered and with minimal sulphuring, the wine boasts exciting “oxidative” notes, a hint of herbs and – very important – a tremendous moreish character! Simply put: air and love!

The grapes for our „Luft & Liebe” (“Air & Love”) come from the Altweingarten site. Its name (“Old Vineyard”) refers to the fact that this was the first single vineyard planted in the village. This site consists of a relatively cool plateau with clay-rich loess soils. The slightly Northern aspect provides the vines with an additional cooling influence and later ripening.

Hans and Paula Diwald grew up in the 1960s, both on a farm. In 1972, they took over the business and restructured it. Since 1976, they have become true pioneers by endeavouring something unthinkable: converting to organic farming practices. Back then there was no official certification yet, only a handful of kindred spirits. Paula and Hans used to be on the receiving end of condescending smiles, but today they are considered among the pioneers of a whole movement. We currently farm 20 ha of vines on our farm and export our wine to 18 countries, on 3 continents. In 2006, Martin Diwald joined the estate. After studying at the Institute of Viticulture and Pomology in Klosterneuburg and completing numerous internships, he was pushed straight into the deep end. He took great joy in experimenting and has never lost that enthusiasm. For example, his experiments with spontaneous fermentation were so successful that already in his second year all the wines were fermented in this way.
