The Beck winery is a family estate in Gols, in northern Burgenland near lake Neusiedl. Traditionally there were small mixed farms in the area, but they always produced wine. In 1975 Matthias Beck took over from his father and started to focus on wine only, they started with 5 ha. Today the Beck estate has 15 ha of vines. In 2001 Judith took over responsibility for the cellar after gaining experience in France, Italy and Chile. In 2007 the conversion to biodynamic viticulture began.
Pannonian climate: Easy winters, mild, wet springs, very dry and hot summers and stable autumns together with the influence of the Neusiedler See (250 square km surface).
The soils here are extremely diverse. In fact, a single vineyard alone can comprise humus, gravel, loam, limestone and minerals.
Organic and biodynamic, guyot simple. Holistic methods are used in the biologically-managed vineyards in order to keep the vines naturally healthy. This includes greening, care for biodiversity, fertilizing with biological humus, working by hand, consideration of the moon cycles and more.
