Wassman Pince BT

VINOLOGIE presents an online exclusive offer of Hungarian biodynamic wine at lcbo.com…

Wassmann Pince BT

VINOLOGIE is delighted to introduce Wassmann Pince BT – a boutique biodynamic Hungarian winery from the bucolic Villány wine region. Available in Ontario for the first time!

Anne was introduced to this winery back in 2017, when judging  the ‘Portugieser du Monde’ wine competition in Pécs. Susann Hanauer, co-owner, was also judging. Anne tasted the Wassmann Cabernet Franc 2015 and was very impressed.  Such purity of flavours, such elegance!  Fast forward a few years, and VINOLOGIE recontacted Susanne to add her and Ralf’s wines to their portfolio.

Susann and her husband Ralf Wassmann moved to Hungary from Germany and set up their eponymous biodynamic winery in the small village of Pécsdevecser (Villány – Siklós) in 2002 and the rest is history. Ralf studied at Giesenheim, Susann is a lawyer by trade and together they apply their skills to their exceptional winery and resulting natural wines. Ralf and Susann’s winery is Demeter certified and holds the DHC Villány origin certification. Their wines contain minimal sulphur and the corks are chlorine free – low intervention natural wine production allowing the biodynamically grown grapes to speak for themselves.

Without further ado, here are the two wines that we believe are beautiful examples of Ralf and Susann’s experienced winemaking skills:
