8 Austrian winemakers to watch

2nd September, 2014 by Lucy Shaw

Peter Honegger and Daniela Pillhofer are on a mission to bring quirky Austrian wines to the attention of the British public. The enterprising young students recently set up shop in a shoebox-sized, iPod dotted space in retail mecca Boxpark in Shoreditch.

Their retail venture, Newcomer Wines, seeks out Austrian wines with a story to tell and quirky labels to match. The Newcomer range starts at £12 and goes up to around £50, which doesn’t seem to be putting off East London locals from giving them a go.

Keen to rid wine of its snobby image, Honegger and Pillhofer want to inject the fun back into Austrian wine and shine a light on unsung boutique producers. Read on for our round-up of eight Austrian winemakers you need on your radar.
