Markus Huber makes the finest of white wines from the village of Nussdorf. Every wine that they produce has its distinct elegance, fine minerality, precision and complexity, with the vision of reflecting their family’s 250-year-old-winery heritage.

Having met the sustainable Austria certification, their Obere Steigen is assured to have undergone high-quality standards. Made with only a selection of the best ripe grapes, it has its dense and complex taste of aromatic herbs.

Goes well with seafood such as trout or salmon and spicy food.

No Synthetic Fertilizers, Herbicides or Pesticides

Organic grapes are cultivated in vineyards banning the use of artificial inputs, including synthetic fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides and pesticides. In organic vineyards, a bountiful growing year relies instead on maintaining strict standards for soil health-for example, upping biodiversity through crop rotation.

No Added Sulfites

In the fermenting and bottling phase of winemaking, organic wines cannot contain added sulfites. Sulfites–also known as sulfur dioxide, a naturally occurring preservative in most wines and an inherent by-product of alcoholic fermentation-can be manually added by the winemaker to up the sulfite level in their bottle of vino, thereby increasing its lifespan. If a winemaker opts to add sulfites but otherwise follows organic farming practices, the wines can’t be labeled “organic.” However, they can be classified as wine “made from organic grapes.”

The exception: bottles produced in Europe and Canada, where organic wine standards allow small amounts of added sulfites as long as the total quantity doesn’t exceed 100 parts per million (ppm) for reds and 150 ppm for whites. (To compare, conventional wine standards in these countries allow sulfite levels up to 150 ppm for red wine and 200 ppm for white.)
