Wine maker notes
The chalky and highly mineral Siglos site is exposed to the north. This guarantees cool nights, which ensure a play of aromas full of finesse. In addition, the steady winds dry the grapes off quickly after every rainfall: an ideal site for Blauburgunder grapes!

Producer
In Seventeenhundredandsixtyseven the Gesellmann Estate was mentioned in official documents for the first time. Ever since, many generations have ensured that the knowledge gathered would no be forgotten, but newly defined for modern times. A milestone in the family history - and at the same time, in the history of viniculture in the Burgenland - was achieved by Engelbert Gesellmann in the 1980s, when he planted international grape varieties and matured them in French barrique casks. Today the results of this pioneering effort are deep-red icons: Opus Eximium (since 1988) and Bela Rex (since 1992). Forty hectares is an exclusive size with the clear intention not to supply the world market, but select wine lovers all over the world, with limited quantities. With great care and consistency when working in the vineyards, the basic foundations are laid to get grapes in ideal condition to the cellar in the autumn. Working by hand is the crucial prerequisite for successful condensation. Already in the vineyard talent is promoted; when picking the grapes, not just every single bunch, but every single berry is checked. We then use only the best grape material - partly from ninety-year old vines, which have lived through a lot and so contribute greatly to the structure of flavours. Naturally, vinification is not just influenced by knowledge gathered over generations, but also by state-of-the-art cellar technology. In Twothousandandeleven we were delighted to receive a special award for our wines: the renowned FALSTAFF wine magazine voted our Bela Rex 2009 Austria’s best red wine.
