Matthias studied at the school of Oenology & Viticulture in Krems, Austria and worked for several years in the Wachau and Burgenland at large commercial wineries. Matthias then began to create his own style of wine at the age of 21. For the last 15 years he has been producing terroir-driven wines from native varietals on his 14 hectares of vineyards from around his hometown of Mollands. Matthias has been Biodynamic certified from Demeter since 2005.
