Ewald Tscheppe makes wine in the southern part of Styria, close to the Slovenian border. This region is famous for its ‘opok’ (sand loam) soils that produce powerful and distinctive white wines. Ewald took over the family winery in 2005 and works the 8 hectares of vines according to biodynamic and sustainable principles. His steep vineyards are home to a number of different soil types, yielding complex and expressive wines. Most of Ewald’s wines are blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Morillon (the Austrian name for Chardonnay), and are aged for long periods of time in large oak barrels.
