STORY

Kathi & Dragos have been a couple for about 8 years and have recently got married. Both bring along several years of professional experience within the wine industry: Kathi in the field of marketing & PR, Dragos as an oenologist at a renowned winery in Vienna / Austria. PEDALONES is more than just a good wine – it is a philosophy of life that Kathi & Dragos can highly recommend.

“When we unexpectedly received the unique opportunity in September 2015 to buy healthy and fully ripe Riesling grapes from the Viennese vineyard Nußberg, we simply had to go for it. This was the kick-off for our own wine brand PEDALONES.” tells the dedicated oenologist Dragos Pavelescu enthusiastically. One vintage has become three; one wine became two. And another project is already in its infancy – more to be announced soon!
