I’m really interested to see which small producers have caught the attention of all the wine lovers on this Community - I’m guessing between us we have some pretty brilliant finds.
I love trying wines from tiny, family operations - especially when there’s a story behind it, or something particularly special about all the love and attention that goes into the wine.
I’ll start, obviously! For me, it’s Grabenwerkstatt - you can read a much longer, more entertaining version of their story here courtesy of @Freddy :
They basically make tiny quantities out of a ‘garage’ winery in the middle of nowhere in Austria, and when I tasted the wines I was just mesmerised by their purity and complexity. The kind of wine where you know you’re tasting something special, so you want to take time over the glass - and the lovely story behind the two guys that make the wines just adds to the magic. There’s none in stock at the moment, alas! I think the article mentions we might get some more later this year though.
Over to you!
