Our cellar

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.

Kellergasse Galgenberg

It all has started here. In this traditional cellar six meters topped by Löß the wines are being kept all year long at a constant temperature of 11°C.

Racking and filtration

In late spring after a few months of settling the wines are racked and filtered at once and then finished for bottling. However the Reserve wines are kept on the lees for about 12 months. We believe that our wines will keep the freshness and the bite this way.

Temperture control

It´s known that during alcoholic fermentation heat and CO² will be generated. Since many fruit esters are formed by the yeast during the fermentation we will keep the temperature constant and low.
By the way, since 2016 the energy needed for this is generated from a 20 KW photovoltaic plant. Another step towards sustainability!

Fermentation tanks

The best grapes deserve the best material! In other words; a clean environment is the best pre-condition to produce and develope outstanding wines!

Our vineyards

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.

Gaisberg

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.

Wechselberg

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.

 

Kammerner Grub

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.

Karl

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.
