Johannes Zillinger

Johannes Zillinger’s family winery is based in Weinviertel and has been operating organically since the 1980s. His father Hans was a pioneer of sustainable farming and started working organically long before it became common practice in Austria. To this day Johannes grows a variety of herbs in his vineyards that naturally protect the vines from disease rather than resorting to the use of pesticides and herbicides. Only the best grapes make it into his wines, and Johannes strictly adheres to a minimal interventionist style of winemaking. 

Johannes makes wine in a range of different styles - from the easy drinking Velue series vinified in a crisp light style, to his skin contact wines that he ferments in amphorae and ages on the lees for extended periods of time.
