The history: “Brigos” is the ancient Celtic word for powerful and mighty. This wine looks into a mighty future and recognizes the foundation of wine culture in the Traisen valley by the Celtic people more than 2000 years ago. Scientists today believe, that the wine culture there is not of Roman origin but has been developed by the Celtic people themself. [Source: University of Agriculture, Vienna; APA 14.12.2006]. The Roman scholar Plinius reports about Celtic travelling craftsmen, who have carried grapes from Italy back to their central European homeland. It is a fact that the Celtics have impressed with strength and might. These characteristics should be also reflected by the Brigos of the Brindlmayer family.
