A potted history.
Andreas Gsellmann’s family has been making wine since 1800 and farms 21 hectares of vineyards in Gols in the Pannonian basin, where wine has been made for 2,000 years and was part of Hungary till 1921. The nearby Lake Neusiedl moderates the hot, dry summers and strong winds aerate the vineyards. Gravelly soils were created from deposits from the receding Pannonian sea and offer excellent drainage. Since 2010, Andreas has been farming biodynamically and is a member of Respekt, a group of “young, dynamic and non-dogmatic” winemakers in Austria, Germany and Hungary.
