Zantho

A joint project of Wolfgang Peck and Josef Umathum in the Burgenland community of Andau in the Neusiedlersee wine-growing region (Austria), close to the Hungarian border. Under the name Zantho (the old Magyar word means "arable land") the first documentary mention of the community of Andau was made as early as 1488. With this brand name a complete range of Burgenland red, white and sweet wines is produced in the Winzergenossenschaft Andau. The managing director and oenologist of the winery is Wolfang Peck. 7 million euros have been invested in the cooperative facilities for quality improvement measures so far, so that today the winery is one of the most modern wine producers in Austria. The significant logo on the bottle label is the Pannonian Forest Lizard (Zoodoca vivipara pannonica). This animal loves the warm, stony soils of the Andauer vineyards and stands as a symbol for the reference to the origin and for the nature-oriented and, for example, beneficial insects gentle cultivation according to the principles of organic viticulture
