Black Johann (Andau)

The estate is located in the municipality of Andau Burgenland wine region Lake Neusiedl (Austria). The vineyards cover 12 hectares of vineyards in the Andauer vineyards on the Hungarian border, which are mostly planted with the varieties Grüner Veltliner, Chardonnay and Zweigelt. For years, the master butcher produced grapes under the guidance of the sweet wine guru Alois cracker (1959-2007), who then processed it. Since 1999, own wines have been produced with the label "Schwarz". Under the concept slogan "With friendly help of Mr. K" is the support by the "two K" Alois Kracher and the from Austria originating Manfred Krankl who runs the garage winery "Sine qua non" in California. Krankl brings in the oenological-technical know-how. The objective was highest quality without fixation on down-to-earth tradition. In the vineyard is an extreme thin out on 6 to a maximum of 10 grapes per stick. The wine is vinified by black in his cellar. There are only three products, the "Schwarz Weiß" (90% Chardonnay, Grüner Veltliner), "Schwarz Rot" (Zweigelt) and since the 2004 vintage the Strohwein "Schwarz Schwarz" from Zweigelt. In the latter, the grapes are harvested when ripe and dried on wire frames. All three wines are matured in oak barrels. The rosé "The Butcher" is no longer produced. About 50% of the production is exported.
