pepp-christian-maria-gruber-w-borderMaria and Christian Gruber are part of one the largest family wineries in Austria and the top producer in Röschitz, about an hour north-west of Vienna in the Weinviertel. Maria works in marketing and Christian in the vineyards. They wanted to come up with a project of their own, one with a more youthful image. Pepp is the result: vibrant Gruner and zippy Zweigelt for easy-drinking.pepp-green-small

Röschitz lies on the granite plateau of the Waldviertel. That crystalline bedrock is common to Beaujolais and Muscadet and outcrops in Alsace, and gives a wonderful fresh, mineral quality to the wine. The bedrock is covered with a shallow layer of loess, unlike the deeper, richer soils elsewhere in the area. The moderate altitude (800-1200 feet) allows for cool nights even in summer. All this helps maintain acidity and freshness, while developing complex fruit.
