Christian Tschida

Christian Tschida cultivates ten hectares of vineyards, which extend on the shore of Lake Neusiedl in Burgland. The vineyards enjoy a particularly favorable climate, and are found on soils characterized by sandy gravel, schist and limestone. The vines have been cultivated for four generations by Christian's family, and his father was an oenologist who founded an association that promoted organic viticulture. Ten years ago, Christian started producing wines with his own label, working to establish a unique style, wines to drink, but which can also age. In the cellar, the approach to winemaking involves the least possible intervention. The wines remain in the barrel for a long time, in contact with oxygen. Christian believes that the key factor in his winemaking process is the vertical press used, which applies a very light pressure, extracting only the best juice from the grapes. Then returns the must and the remaining juice to the vines, in a particular preparation that promotes the health of the vineyard. All wines spontaneously ferment on indigenous yeasts, are bottled without being flammed or clarified, and without the addition of sulfur. Several wines produced; those of the series "Himmel auf Erden", which means "Paradise on Earth", in homage to a painting by Alfred Hrdlicka that appears on the label, in white version based on Muscat, Pinot Blanc and Scheurebe, and in red version obtained from grapes of Cabernet Sauvignon and Zweigelt.Other series is the "NonTradition", which is a deliberate blow to Austrian culture in general, which Christian feels to be irrepressibly regimented, and to the idea that wines should conform to a certain regional style, white is obtained from the symbolic grape of Austria, the Grüner Veltliner, while the Red is based Cabernet Franc. To be noted the "Brutal", red wine o0ttenuto from 10 different grapes, but above all the brand "Brutal" was born between nine producers in all over Europe that work organically and without sulphites, each chooses a barrel, which could be the most interesting or strange or something else, for the selection "Brutal", the "headquarters" of the network is in Catalonia. Typically, the front label of a "brutal" bottle does not say the name of the manufacturer.
