As a young man, Markus dreamed of becoming a professional football (soccer) player. Markus was brought up in Reichersdorf, Austria – where his parents ran their vineyard and studied at the HBLA in Klosterneuburg, graduating as a Viticultural engineer. In the end, Markus decided to follow on with the family tradition of winemaking in Austria with roots dating back over 220 years. To gain international winemaking knowledge, he interned in Austrialia at wineries including Mittelback, Jurtschitsch and Bründlmayer. Austrialia was followed by a stint in South Africa where he spent time working at some of the best wineries in the country, including Kaapzicht, Spiceroute & Lammershoek. He has been described as a winemaker to watch and a ‘Wunderkind’ (British Decanter Magazine) by the press. Together with his close-knit team the winery has already achieved huge success and numerous awards on the international stage.
