Winery Star

Wine Leaders' Choice

Leibnitz, Austria

“Respectful, subtle-moving” is the motto of Hannes and Petra Harkamp. In Sausal in southern Styria, the two cultivate 20 hectares of vineyards according to biodynamic guidelines. Hannes Harkamp is particularly talented in producing elegant Sekts, using the traditional method of bottle fermentation. Here, too, biodynamic viticulture plays a decisive role.

In the future, it is important for Hannes to turn the quality screw even further. Where Harkamp is written on it, Harkamp should also be tasted: The style of the house, the special philosophy of wine and sparkling winemaking, and the origin should be unmistakably present in the glass.

Petra Harkamp

Women Wine Leaders

Petra has been the woman at Hannes’ side since 1994. With her loving and energetic nature, she is a very important motor in the Harkamp gearbox. The daily challenges in the company rarely throw Petra off balance. In the winery, she primarily takes care of product management, marketing, sales and, together with Hannes, the business and operational management. What Petra particularly enjoys about her job is working with nature. “It’s great to have the opportunity to produce wines and sparkling wines that we like to drink ourselves. And because we are winegrowers, we were able to turn our hobby, good food and drink, into our profession” she said.
