Weingut Gross

Steiermark | Südsteiermark | Ehrenhausen

Johannes Gross is the fifth generation of his family to farm and make wine in Ratsch, on the poetically hilly, verdant edge of Südsteiermark (southern Styria). It’s a place defined by climatic tension between the Alps and the Adriatic with steep, terraced hillsides, a mélange of volcanic and sedimentary soils, and a range of traditional Styrian varieties, foremost sauvignon blanc. The terrain demands intensive handwork; yields are kept very low. In the cellar, Johannes focuses on spontaneous fermentations and traditional vinification methods. The wines are entrancingly aromatic, playful, lively, and keenly defined.

Weingut Gross 2020 "Mitzi" Gelber Muskateller

"Mitzi" borrows its name form the nickname of Johannes and Michael Gross' grandmother, Maria. "She exemplifies persistence, shares her experiences with us and has proudly retained her independence. Grandma Maria has taught us her tried-and-tested craft of winemaking and passed down traditional wisdom. She shows us that work can be fun." A precise and refreshingly typical Styrian Muskateller, fermented and aged on its lees in stainless steel.
