The vision of a sinologist

Cordula Alessandri

Matthias Krön bought the best vines on the Eisenberg hill, which is known for being Austria’s best growing territory. So the wine really had to be big. And big was the theme. This would become a question of marketing one-litre bottles in an environment where the 75cl bouteille was king. The only thing to do was to approach the subject with confidence and playfulness. Which is why Alessandri went for an almost over-the-top visual redolent of the last truly opulent age, the fin de siècle.
