Roman Horvath MW runs Domäne Wachau in Austria, widely regarded as one of the best co-operatives in the world. Roman may have been uninterested in wine until his mid-20s, but he’s certainly made up for lost time. Today, he’s a key figure in the picturesque Wachau Valley. We talked about the magic of Grüner Veltliner, fermenting wines in marble tanks for a bit of fun, and what it takes to keep the co-op’s 250 families happy.
To read more about Roman’s wines, have a look at the Domäne Wachau website. You can also follow him on Instagram @domaenewachau.
