Liubisa -current vintage-
[Unfortunately winelaw does not permit vintage and variety to be shown on the label. Please contact us for more information.]

It was 1986 when a young winemaker from Langenlois, after his apprenticeship in Italy, smuggled a few Sangiovese vines across the border to Austria, where they were secretly cultivated. In Kamptal the vinification of this variety was not allowed at the time. The winemaker quickly found an adequate solution for his experiment and blended the probably northernmost Sangiovese of Europe with a part of his Pinot Noir. This is how the Cuveé LIUBISA was born. Liubisa, which translates to "the lovely valley", is the historical name of the town of Langenlois. It was given to this beautiful place by the first celtic settlers.
