The 2016 biokult Grüner Veltliner received a Gold Medal and was named the Reserve Class Champion in the 2018 Rodeo Uncorked! International Wine Competition. Made with 100% Grüner Veltliner this Biodynamic wine has emerald straw color, with clean aromas of key lime, underripe apricot, talc, and gardenia. It has a velvety, vibrant, dry medium body and a warming, delightful, medium-length cherry blossom, blanched almond, crisp Napa cabbage, and snap pea finish with fruit tannins. This dry Gruner has pleasant floral notes and the signature white pepper finish.
The 2018 Rodeo Uncorked! International Wine Competition was held Nov. 11 – 12, 2017, at NRG Center. This year’s event had a record 3,188 entries from 18 different countries, making it one of the top 5 largest wine competitions in the country. The competition is judged by a host of established sommeliers and wine professionals. The competition is held annually as part of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo.
biokult unites a group of organic vintners with the shared goal of producing organic wines of the highest quality – wines that embody regional identity and bring pure, natural enjoyment in the glass.
All biokult vintners are obliged to certified organic production, environmental protection, biodiversity, and the promotion of healthy soils in their vineyards. Abstinence from artificial fertilizers and stabilizers guarantee unadulterated enjoyment.
Cooperation of this group of dedicated organic vintners has resulted in a fresh new image for organic Austrian wine and an unique attractive brand. Successful sales of their organic wines sourced from high-quality fruit began with the 2005 vintage. This success was preceded by years of work on their joint project “quality improvement through organic viticulture.”
Winemakers Angela and Werner Michlits took responsibility for vinification: “Organic wines represent the most authentic origin. It is a great challenge for us to continue the natural way of production in the cellar as well – winemaking and winegrowing has to be one unit!”
biokult is biodynamic
biokult wines are Demeter certified Biodynamic. Biodynamic farming works in harmony with natural ecosystems to preserve and protect life’s diversity and species for future generations. This comprehensive organic farming method requires the creation and management of a closed system. Farmers must be minimally dependent on imported materials, meeting all needs with the living dynamics of the farm itself. This self-contained farm is the ultimate model of sustainability and environmental preservation.
Biodynamic methods develop the vineyard’s greatest potential. Healthier soil produces outstanding quality grapes and their resulting wines capture the true essence of the winery’s terroir, creating a “taste of place,” and a delightful glass of wine.
You can find biokult Grüner Veltliner at fine retailers nationwide.
