Corinne Kox is a forward-thinking third-generation winemaker. Her latest experiment is planting trees between rows of vines to promote biodiversity and to combat the effects of climate change in the vineyard.
Can Sumoi is a project started by childhood friends Pepe Raventós and Francesc Escala. They revitalise old, high altitude vineyards with organic and biodynamic farming practices and make gorgeous, vivid wines from local grape varieties such as Sumoll, Parellada, Garnacha Blanca, and Xarel.lo.
Markus Bach and Edgar Brutler, the team at Groszer Wein, are making expressive wine from the region’s most famous grape, Blaufränkisch. Their 20 hectares of vines, growing in alpine slate soils, are located in eastern Austria and are farmed organically.
