Judith Beck winery is a 15 hectare estate in Gols in Austria’s Burgenland, which has been farming biodynamically since 2007, aiming to respect the environment and produce the best quality grapes, using native Austrian varieties.
Judith Beck herself studied abroad at places like Cos d'Estournel in Bordeaux and Errazuriz in Chile but returned home to take over from her father and move the winery in the direction of natural winemaking. They encourage the formation of humus as a basis of healthy soils, using their own natural composts and cultivating grass between the rows. Herbal remedies are also used and the vines are maintained under the rhythms of the moon.
Authentic wines that bear a clear thumbprint are the declared goal of Judith Beck. She avoids inoculated yeasts of any kind, and minimises sulphur, fining or filtration, epitomising this philosophy.
“I seriously believe in this low-intervention winemaking and I am going to continue like that. For me this is not about a trend, but a deeply held commitment.” — Judith Beck.
