Andritz Bianco

Close your eyes: the essence is concentration, it is part of us.

It is the result of our pursuing beauty and precision; our utmost care and passion. Great care and precision paired with a wise exploitation of the wood. Each grape berry has given its best in Andritz by offering all the minerality, characteristic of these carefully tended hill slopes, and by ripening to perfection during the warm summer evenings. The result is exceptional: it is pure strength, character and elegance, combined. Only the perfectly ripe clusters have been carefully selected and harvested by skillful hands. True persistence. The patience to wait for the right moment!

Andritz, homeland and heritage, is the native place in Styria located in the southeast of Austria from where the family’s ancestors left, over a century ago, to set their roots in the Collio.
