A joint project of Wolfgang Peck and Josef Umathum in the Burgenland municipality of Andau, close to the Hungarian border, in the wine-growing region of Neusiedlersee (Austria). The municipality of Andau was first mentioned in a document in 1488 under the name Zantho (the old Magyar word means "farmland"). With this brand name, a complete range of Burgenland red, white and sweet wines is produced at the Andau winegrowers' cooperative. The managing director and oenologist of the company is Wolfang Peck. So far, 7 million euros have been invested in the cooperative's facilities to improve quality, so that today it is one of the most modern wine businesses in Austria. The significant logo emblazoned on the bottle label is the Pannonian forest lizard (Zoodoca vivipara pannonica). The animal, which is found here, loves the warm, stony soils in the Andau vineyards and stands as a symbol for the connection to the origins and for the natural cultivation of the vineyards according to the principles of organic viticulture.
