Jutta Ambrositsch

In 2005 Jutta Ambrositsch decided to make a dramatic career change and left her job as a graphic designer to make traditionally inspired wines from old vine parcels in Vienna. Vienna is particularly famous for its historic field blends or ‘Gemischter Satz’ where a number of different grape varieties are planted, harvested and fermented together. Most of Jutta’s wines are blends or field blends inspired by this Viennese tradition, and her goal is to always put terroir first, which is why she is largely focused on single vineyard bottlings. In 2013 Jutta took over some old vine parcels planted in the fossil limestone soils of Gumpoldskirchen, a historic wine growing village in the neighbouring Thermenregion appellation.

Jutta is a very natural winemaker, using only native yeasts and keeping cellar intervention to a minimum. She is dedicated to vinifying wines that speak for themselves and express local tradition and terroir. All of her wines are fermented and aged in stainless steel to emphasise purity of fruit and keep the wines energetic and fresh.
