Very close friends Alwin & Stefanie Jurtschitsch and Martin & Anna Arndorfer founded the new winery, Fuchs und Hase, producing exclusively Pet Nat. They started by selecting a site at altitude, to ensure a cool climate, promoting naturally high acidity and low alcohol. The whole idea of starting to produce Pet Nat was to make sparkling wine without adding anything, not even sulphur, and to still gain a wine which is refreshing to drink, shows its origin and vibrancy. Fuchs und Hase means ‘Fox and Hare’, this is a nod to an Austrian saying ‘where fox and hare say good night’ and refers to an area surrounded by forest.

Each cuvee is a different volume, this is a scale, the higher the number the more skin contact the wine has undergone.

Light brown-orange colour. On the nose it is restrained with aromas of ripe apples, stone fruit and dried fruit; extra dry on the palate, slightly astringent.
