The Full moon wine – according to the moon calendar cultivated and at full moon harvested vineyard. A wine full of depth, vitality and timelessness
The variety Weißburgunder occupies around 10% of the vineyard area owned by WEINGUT CHRIST in Vienna – Jedlersdorf and is situated in a relatively high site at the Viennese side of the Bisamberg.
A lot of patience, emotions and a strong quality selection were necessary to harvest the excellent grapes which lead to a great wine. In order to deepen the complex taste and the aroma and to reinsure a reliable development, a long and careful ageing period on the fine yeast was completed.
The wine is vinified in a very special way. The focus is on the moon calendar, both harvest and cellar work are aligned with the full moon. The Project started back in 1997.
Various blind tastings confirmed the bonus of this particular vineyard management. Also, the storability always knows how to convince.
