You know we love our Austrian reds, and this is no exception. Beautiful blueberries on the nose, light and drinkable. ENJOY WITH A SLIGHT CHILL.
From the importer: Rét translates from Hungarian as grassland or field, since the land where these grapes grow used to be a pasture for feeding the livestock of the village. The grapes are hand-harvested, destemmed, and fermented naturally on skins for 6 days. Pressed into stainless steel and large acacia vats (Zweigelt), where they matured on gross lees for 9 months without any additives, without fining, and without filtration, or temperature control.
Blended together shortly before bottling. Bottled unfined, unfiltered, this 2020 vintage got no SO2 addition.
USNW Classification: Natural

About the Winemaker
Website & Instagram.
From the importer: Bottles of Koppitsch are ones that capture your attention right away, with their vivid labels and the juicy, easy-drinking wine inside. Just like the area where they’re born, the popular vacation spot of Lake Neusiedl, these wines ooze the lazy holiday vibe of days spent sun-lounging and boat- or bike-riding. “We want to make wines that bring you this kind of easy feeling of joy,” Maria nods, “that you can open anytime and they’ll always put a smile on your face.”
US Natural Wine ships once a week, every Wednesday. All orders should be placed by Tuesday at 10am in order to be picked up from our distributors and out on Wednesday's delivery truck.
Shipping cost is 18 bucks a box (up to 12 bottles) so we highly encourage picking up more than 1 bottle for the best value!
At $18, we have some of the most competitive shipping rates compared to other low-intervention wine e-commerce, which can range from $20-$25 a box. Ultimately, we eat the cost of shipping more often than not because wine can be damn heavy. As a small business, we are simply unable to offer free shipping. We can't thank you enough for your understanding!
