Zumm Martin Sepp Rose 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

"Zum Martin Sepp is a small restaurant and inn located in Grinzing, a little town on the northern outskirts of Vienna. Michael and Freya Martin produce wine for the inn at Weingut Martinshof, their winery in the Weinvirtel. For generations, the region has supplied wine almost exclusively for the Viennese market, with little or none exported to other countries or even other parts of Austria. "Today, Carlo Huber brings the wines into the US and is one of the few importers to focus on Viennese wine, including Zum Martin Sepp, the house wines of a little inn in Grinzing." - Distributor

“Innovation, stubbornness and a little bit of madness” - So self describes himself Michael Martin, the young wine making dynamo of Weingut Martinshof. The trend to buck conservative thought was started even by his great grandfather, who insisted on growing Burgundian varietals, many years before they were popular in Austria. After his death however, his cherished Pinot Blanc was pulled up in favor of higher yielding varieties. The Martin family has owned and operated the heuriger "Zum Martin Sepp" (www.zummartinsepp.at) for generations, and it still remains one of the most prominent and popular of Vienna’s Grinzing district. As Michael took over the winemaking in the late 80’s, it was his desire to bring the Martinshof brand back from quantity to quality. Now alongside the classic, spicy Weinviertel DAC Gruener Veltliner and charming Zweigelts, Michael Martin is producing Pinot Noir and Pinot Blancs with structure and finesse. ‘Food friendly’ is the first words that generally come to mind when sipping any of the Martinshof wines. Whether light and elegant, or rich and structured, all of Michael’s wines scream for food. This is the very quality that brought them first into the Darcy and Huber Selections portfolio. Read less
