Gerhard Kracher is widely regarded as one of the greatest sweet winemakers in the world. He has more than lived up to the legacy of his late father, Luis, the man who pioneered new styles of Austrian botrytis-affected wine and promoted them tirelessly around the globe. We talked about noble rot, volatile acidity, unusual food matches and what makes the Seewinkel such a unique place to grow grapes.
To read more about Gerhard’s wines, have a look at the Kracher website. You can also follow him on Instagram @gerhard_kracher.
