Vineyard: loess, planted in 1962
Cellar: The hand-harvested grapes are destemmed, gently pressed after 6 hours of skin maceration, and then fermented spontaneously in stainless steel tanks. Bottled according to the Méthode Ancestrale while the fermentation is still going, unfined and unfiltered, with zero addition of sulfur. Disgorged in the following spring.
Personality: Acid-driven! Pleasant aromas of green apples, fine bubbles, low alcohol (10.6% ABV only) make this natural sparkler really easy to enjoy.
The winery started in 2015, with a tiny Gruner Veltliner plot taken care of by Daniel and bottled for the local market. With a new vineyard addition in 2018, the couple plunged into full-on natural mode, and the Schrammel 2.0 label was born. The project is a true micro-winery focused on old vines (their own plantations come from 1962 and 1979, planted by Nicole’s grandfather). The couple isn’t classically trained – Daniel works in sales and marketing in nearby Vienna and Nicole, whose family traditionally owned vineyards, is a special-needs teacher currently taking care of their three kids. The vines are cultivated with a lot of biodiversity, including the family’s own vegetable garden.
