Because simplicity is beautiful.

Rét translates to “field” in Hungarian, and this idyllic red wine composed of 80% Zweigelt and 20% Saint Laurent conjures up images of simpler times. The grapes were harvested and fermented on skins for 10 days prior to being pressed and going into stainless steel tanks and acacia barrels for 14 months of elevage on gross lees. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Plenty of crunchy red fruit aromas, and herbal tea-like characteristics add a nice bit of contrast to this gluggable red.
  • Alexander and Maria Koppitsch - husband and wife winemaking wonder duo - want to create wines that “bring you this kind of easy feeling of joy.”
  • The vines were in Alex’s family after Alex’s grandfather went missing during WW2 and was a prisoner of war; he founded the estate when he returned home.
  • Alex and Maria met at a local bar, and 3 months later she was pregnant with their first son Jakob - all while they took over the winery.

Vibes with:

  • Afternoon light filtering through your kitchen blinds.
  • Holiday baking.
  • Stuffing with sausage.
