In this episode, I had the opportunity to talk to a motivated young winemaker, Johannes Fritz, from Austria. The Josef Fritz winery is located in the heart of a lesser-known Austrian wine region: Wagram, which deserves much more international fame than it tends to enjoy. You can listen to Johannes’s thorough introduction to the region, which alone would worth listening to this episode, together with the in-depth portrayal of their flagship grape variety Roter Veltliner. He also talks about his orange wine project, explains why he prefers to work with acacia barrels, and how the Roter Veltliner reacts to different vinification techniques. This episode equals a Roter Veltliner and Wagram masterclass, that every passionate Austrian wine lover could appreciate.

You can also watch the video version of this episode on the Wine Ghosts' Youtube channel. So please enjoy this episode, and drink more indigenous varieties!
