The Weninger family own 24 hectares in the Sopron area of Hungary which they first purchased in 1997, divided in two vineyards: Spern-Steiner and Frettner. These great south-east facing vineyards are ideally located overlooking the lake Neusiedl on the border with Austria. The young Franz Weninger is producing some of the best red and white wines in Hungary using biodynamic and organic agricultural practices. Franz firmly believes that the grape variety Kekfrankos (better known as Blaufrankisch) has great potential in this area and over the last 10 years has continued to experiment with it and now produces three distinctive individual styles.
