Maria and Sepp Muster took over his parents 10-hectare winery in the southern Austrian region of Styria in 2000 and began to work the vines biodynamically. They had an easy transition, as no herbicides or pesticides had ever been used there before. Rocky clay and silt soils dominate the steep hills of their vineyards. This clay silt is known locally as �Opok� after which two of their wines are named. The Graf wines also feature the opok soil but have steeper south facing slopes that reduce yields and produce wines of more structure and pronounced mineral character. And finally, they make orange wines like Erde, which can be found in special clay bottles. All wines are made from spontaneous fermented grapes without any addition of yeast. The wine is fermented in large oak vats. Bottling without stabilization and filtration.The Muster family works with Morillon (Chardonnay), Sauvignon Blanc, Welchsriesling, Gelber Muskateller, Zweigelt, Blaufr�nkisch and Blauer Wildbacher.
