Josephine has a presence, when she enters the room jealous haters perk up. But, you know what they say about haters (fuck them). Blaufrankish and Roesler on gravel soil produce a slurp that is full bodied yet unbothered by bitterness (mellow tannins) and a long and memorable finish shameless with red fruit. Invite Josephine to your party if you want to scare off the boring losers.

Have you ever heard that you can not dream a novel face? That every stranger's face you have seen in a dream must have come from someone you've seen before, stored somewhere deep in between folds of grey matter. Gut Oggau challenges that little anecdote, as they do many pre-conceptions and traditions in modern wine making.

Eduard and Stephanie Tscheppe-Eselböck are unapologetically poetic and whimsical, undeniably serendipitous, and very, very attractive – yet not intimidating. Taking over an abandoned vineyard in the village of Oggau off of Austria's Lake Neusidl in 2007 they let the winds blow and the rains wash away any residual agricultural chemicals and/or shackles to the expectations of the past. And now they are the undisputed hype GOATs of the natty wine world and the poster couple for Biodynamic agriculture.

Though they work mostly with six main grapes (Blaufrankish, Rötburger, Grüner Veltliner, Welchriesling, Weissburgunder, and Gewurtzraminer) they do not define their wines as such. Their wines are people, completely fictional but now alive and recognizable, probably popping up in the bizarre dreams of wine folk worldwide. Treat yourself, get Gut.
