It´s just a few weeks to months from the grape to the "finished" wine. In this short period it´s very important for us to keep control at all times. All our musts are taken from hand-selected grapes, which are gently pressed and clarified and brougth to our fermentation tanks. Skin contact is depending on the maturity and temperature of the material and can be up to 24 hours. A clean, temperature-controlled fermentation is achieved by adding cultivated yeasts. Temperature adjustments are being done during this process. All our wines are left on the lees until the time of bottling. A sole addition of sulfur ensures the fruitiness and development of the wine.
Racking and filtration
By the way, since 2016 the energy needed for this is generated from a 20 KW photovoltaic plant. Another step towards sustainability!
Kamptal vineyards (Rieden)
Galgenberg - Gallows hill
With regard to our entire vineyard acreage this is the largest and closest one to the winery. Several lots of vineyards are located on the Galgenberg. The soil there is mostly gravel provided with sand and Löss or mixtures of these - an ideal site for Grüner Veltliner. By the way - our original wine cellar is located in the middle of the idyllic Kellergasse at the Galgenberg.
Is the sisterhill of the famous Heiligenstein. The subsoil also with primary rock, covered with a layer of Löss and clay. This is where our Riesling comes from.
A prime vineyard site on terraces planted with Grüner Veltliner and at the same time the oldest vineyard we own with more than 60 years of age.
The Grub or Grubgraben lies embedded between the Heiligenstein and the Gaisberg. It´s where our oldest Zweigelt vineyard is placed. It´s a terraced vineyard with a special micro climate and soil. Not just known as a Ried, but also as find spot where human artifacts were found dating back to 19000 BC.
Is our largest vineyard complex consisting of 13 terraces with more than ten hectares. It lies high above the Kamptal and is also our most important Ried for Grüner Veltliner.
