The new wine of Franz Weninger’s hand-drawn label series. The deeper coloured, red partner of Rózsa Petsovits, identical to which, is also made from both sides of the border. Following the hand-harvest, half of the biodynamic grapes, the Hungarian Pinot Noir and the Austrian Zweigelt, were destemmed, while the other half was fermented in whole bunches in wooden vats, then aged for a year and a half in used barrels. 

It was bottled in May 2020.

Ponzichter (Bohnenzüchter) was the name used for those German-speaking Sopron vinedressers who grew beans in between the rows that remained free. It had a practical reason as beans gave the basis to the majority of their meals. Besides, it also helped the grapes as the plant that belongs to the Fabaceae (legume) family absorbs nitrogen from the air, which is then used in the soil. That’s how the old tradition is connected to Franz’s biodynamic methods. 

It’s an easy-to-drink ‘table red’ with the last bubbles of the fermentation’s carbon dioxide, with a touch of lees, and a young wine feel.
