Weingut Tement is a family winery in Austria. The vineyards are located in Südsteiermark (southern Styria) directly on the border with Slovenia, on a narrow plateau into which the slope of the Zieregg cru gently flattens. Armin and his father Manfred, who founded the estate in 1979, handcraft some of the most highly awarded Austrian wines.  The farming is certified Organic by Lacon.  All fermentation is naturally occurring from indgenous yeasts and all wines are aged on the lees without sulphur. The crus are bottled without finings and filtratons.  Their Sauvignon Blanc was the first to receive a rating of 20/20 points by René Gabriel and the Zieregg Sauvignon Blanc is always in the TOP TEN of the best wines Austria.
