Bernhard Ott

WAGRAM

Bernhard Ott is a fourth-generation Austrian winemaker whose primary focus is grüner veltliner. In 2007, after a visit to Domaine d la Romanée-Conti, he was convinced that biodynamic farming was an important qualitative practice.

Bernhard’s estate is certified biodynamic and he also does extensive composting, which he believes helps regulate water, negating the need for irrigation. All harvesting is done by hand and the wines do not go through malolactic fermentation, helping to retain their crisp character.

These southern-Austrian Grüners have great varietal character and site-sensitive attributes with differing degrees of intense fruit, spice, herbs, and mineral components.
