Barrels are inevitable components of modern winemaking, and this episode will feature Hungary's best barrel maker, the world-class Kádár.

He argued why oak has become the most popular wood source for wine barrels, explained the different species used in the construction, illustrated the terroir differences in the different growing regions, described the importance of seasoning and bending techniques. You can also learn why Kádár recommends a  longer seasoning period for low pH wines, and which barrel would be the best for spirits. This episode is a must for every sommelier and vintner who wants to expand his or her technical knowledge about this often oversimplified topic. Please enjoy, and let me know if you have any further questions, we might do a second round with András if needed! Look for extra videos on the Wine Ghosts Youtube channel with explanatory graphs and maps to understand some of the more complicated arguments more easily.

    Ep. 58. / Stadt Krems: How can an Austrian city own and manage a world-class winery?

    1:02:28

    How can a city have a winery and top it all an outstanding one? Well this time, I sat down with Peter Mandl from the winery Stadt Krems from the Kremstal region in Lower Austria. Stadt means city in German, so this winery word for word bears the name of this artistic town on the shore of the River Danube, just on the edge of the Wachau region. In this episode, you can hear vintage recommendations from the area, learn about the steepest and most cherished cultivated vineyards in Krems and how do they taste like, and of course, how does a quite small city manage to administer such a top-notch winery that the entire city can be proud of.

    This time, I'd love to go back in time a little bit when we were still allowed to travel, and so I want to focus on a marvelous wine I've purchased on our last Italian holiday. This is one of my favorite Sauvignon Blancs, the Sanct Valentin from St. Michael-Eppan.

    Ep. 57. / Masi winery and the legend of Amarone by Giacomo Boscaini

    50:26

    This podcast focuses on a prestigious winery that has played a major role in bringing Amarone onto the world-class quality and status level that it's now enjoying. I've sat down with Giacomo Boscaini, brand ambassador and export manager at the Masi winery, to talk about his family's contribution to Amarone's fame, to hear the specific characteristics of the typical varieties and the reason for still using Molinara and the myth of the Oseleta grape. You will also hear why the winery still prefers bamboo racks for the drying process, some wine pairing tips for Recioto, the evolution of the Ripasso method and the importance of single vineyard Amarones. Amarone is the only dry wine in the world produced with completely dried grapes, thereby reaching fantastic aromatic and structural depth, yet also a vital freshness under the Masi labels. Christmas is approaching, so if you're still looking for a Christmas present or just a festive wine for the dinner table, you can't go wrong with an Amarone, or even with an Osar, a captivating 100% Oseleta.   Buy the Masi wines here: https://www.enotecamasi.it/at/eur/en/   1:40 - Introdution to the origin story of Masi 6:15 - Terroir in Valpolicella Classica 8:10 - Masi Amarone Crus 13:30 - Typical Amarone varieties 18:00 - Myth of Oseleta 19:47 - Who is Mr. Amarone? 22:07 - Appassimento and the myth of Amarone & Ripasso 32:16 - Recioto & its relevance & Food Pairing 36:10 - Importance of Organics & Sustainability 38:20 - Other Masi Projects & Connected Wineries 44:00 - Where to learn more and why to visit? 46:45 - Appassimento Rosé & Whites?   | Guest: Giacomo Boscaini | Masi Winery | @masiwines | Wine Ghosts Instagram: @wineghosts | Support & Get Exclusive on the Wine Ghosts Patreon Site: https://www.patreon.com/wineghosts | Join the Wine Ghosts Facebook Group: www.facebook.com/groups/wineghosts/ | Wine Ghosts' Channels (Instagram, Podcast etc.): https://linktr.ee/wineghosts

    Ep. 56. / Domäne Wachau, an exemplary cooperative with Roman Horvath MW

    1:18:59

    This episode virtually goes to the Wachau region of Austria again! My guest is the honorable Roman Horvath, Master of Wine and CEO of the Domäne Wachau winery. In my eyes, the Domäne has been a fantastic example of a respectable and innovative cooperative not only in Austria, but in the vast wine world as well. Hundreds of local vintners families thrive for excellent wines with around 80 labels under the guidance of Mr. Horvath and Mr. Frischengruber, the chief winemaker and oenologist at the estate. We've talked about the Wachau terroir and history in great detail, tasted 3 tasty wine ghosts together, touched upon sustainable and organic viticulture, discussed the ideal way to show the individuality of the many Wachau micro terroirs, and highlighted why Wachau should be your next holiday destination. It was a very educational and compact episode, and of course, a great honor to have Mr. Horvath on the show. Enjoy, and please leave a rating on iTunes if you've liked it, or just send me feedback on social media or via mail. And visit the Wine Ghosts' Youtube or Instagram channel for short segments cut out from the podcast, like the explanation of the wine-growing conditions in the region on detailed maps by my guest.   Timeline: 1:51 - Introduction 3:18 - Wachau as a Wine Region 10:59 - differences between Southern and Northern Bank & Principal Soil Types 13:33 - Vineau Wachau Classification 19:15 - Wachau as a DAC 26:14 - Tasting Riesling Federspiel Bruck 2020 32:11 - Ideal Glassware for the Wachau Styles 34:00 - Structure of the Domäne Wachau 42:01 - Sustainable Certification and way towards organic 47:08 - Tasting MTX 2020 - Müller-Thurgau 2020 52:26 - Backstage Portfolio Wines 55:39 - Wachau History & Old Vines 57:51 - Recipe to show the individuality of the Wachau Terroir 1:04:31 - Tasting Kirnberg Smaragd Veltliner 2020 1:10:21 - Grapes for the Future?! 1:13:16 - What keeps Mr. Horvath at the Domäne?   | Guest: Roman Horvath MW | Domäne Wachau | @domaenewachau | Wine Ghosts Instagram: @wineghosts | Support & Get Exclusive on the Wine Ghosts Patreon Site: https://www.patreon.com/wineghosts | Join the Wine Ghosts Facebook Group: www.facebook.com/groups/wineghosts/ | Wine Ghosts' Channels (Instagram, Podcast etc.): https://linktr.ee/wineghosts

    Ep. 55. / Pap Wines bottles volcanic vibration in their garage in Hungary

    51:46

    After a long break, I proudly present you a podcast that is certainly something else. This time you hear Aron and Karina from the Pap Wines winery that makes biodynamic, low intervention "garage wines" on the Northern side of the Lake Balaton in Hungary. We've recorded this episode on an ancient volcano, the Szent György hill. I've already visited three outstanding vintners on this magical hill in 2019: the Bencze, Gilvesy and Szászi winery. At Pap wines, we've recorded these sequences almost during a whole day at the end of May this year, when we were finally allowed to travel back home again. You will hear that the recordings take place in the vineyards, in the tiny garage-like cellar as well in the artistic kitchen after a fabulous vegetarian dinner cooked by Aron. My friend, an utterly talented photographer and video creator, Kornél Simon, also accompanied us on this journey and filmed the dreamy landscape around the vineyards and the unique surroundings in and around the house, so expect some memorable image video coming out on our channels soon. Simply follow the Wine Ghosts Youtube and Instagram channel to keep posted, and also to get a glimpse into my Südtirol trip, where I've visited 5 outstanding wineries in two unforgettable days. Cheers and please listen to Aron as he introduces his vineyards and farming philosophy from the Eastern side of the hill.   Timeline: 2:13 - Vineyards, Burgundy clones, bush vines 7:43 - Volcanic origins, Balaton Uplands 10:25 - Working on volcanic terroir, Olaszrizling plantations, ides for vinification 14:54 - Road from Copenhagen to the Hungarian vineyards 20:30 - New plantations: old Hungarian Variety: Laska 23:35 - Interest for Hungarian wines & Indian food 26:53 - Religion and Faith 28:13 - Label Design 29:38 - Tasting the ghosts 34:23 - Bazanit Cuvée & Vinification 41:41 - Hárslevelű on the skin 45:21 - Out of the RATRACE? & Vin de Garage     | Guest: Karina Vissonova & Áron Molnár | Pap Wines | @papwines | Wine Ghosts Instagram: @wineghosts | Support & Get Exclusive on the Wine Ghosts Patreon Site: https://www.patreon.com/wineghosts | Join the Wine Ghosts Facebook Group: www.facebook.com/groups/wineghosts/ | Wine Ghosts' Channels (Instagram, Podcast etc.): https://linktr.ee/wineghosts
