Tscherne 18

Steinbach, Styria

    The Tscherne winery and inn is a new/old project owned by the Strauss family and run by Bettina & Gustav Strauss. They have revitalized the original house and rebuilt the barn in an attempt to preserve the history of the property. The wines produced at Tscherne are done in the same manner as the Strauss winery in the sense of hand picking, sustainability in the vineyard (no pesticides & insecticides) and minimal intervention in the cellar. Where the wines differ is in the use of traditional 300lt, 600lt, and 1200lt neutral barrels for aging. Tscherne consists of roughly 20 acres of vines with total annual production of 60,000 bottles. Along with the small inn, Bettina & Gustav are currently building a "Buschenschank" or Heuriger - a small tavern with delicacies from the region.
