Harkamp sparkling wine
Thanks to Hannes Harkamp, southern Styria can call itself a real centre of excellence for sparkling wine. Some years ago, the vintner decided to renovate the Villa Hollerbrand in Seggauberg, originally built in 1897. Since then it has served as a sparkling wine cellar. He uses the traditional method of bottle fermentation, also employed in champagne. As such, he deliberately avoids tank fermentation and the artificial addition of carbon dioxide, which can subsequently be perceived in the excellent quality of his sparkling wine.

Bottle shape CHAMPAGNE BUTTERFLY The name "butterfly" may suggest a delicate, fragile thing, but this bottle is a real heavyweight. Very robust and resistant.
