Company information

Josef Donabaum’s small, ambitious winery grows vines in some of the steepest and most demanding territories in the Wachau. Together with his wife Herta and his son Christoph, he cultivates 3 hectares in total. Yet the wines that are made from the grapes of the barren vineyards of the Zornberg, the Point, the 1000-Eimer Berg, Offenberg and the Setzberg are highly impressive. Covering all categories, the family produces elegant and mineral Veltliner and Riesling, using some vines that are more than 60 years old, and which differ in character according to their specific vineyards and harvest times. Physiological maturity and healthy grape material is a key priority for the Donabaums. They produce almost all of the Wachau styles, ranging from the Steinfeder to the single vineyard Smaragd, in stainless steel tanks, which enhances the crystal-clear fruit and the cool character of the Spitzer Graben. Another highlight in their range is the Neuburger, which is vinified (depending on the vintage) either as Federspiel or as Smaragd.   Finally, there is also a Heurigen which is well worth visiting. Seated in a lush arbour, guests can enjoy the excellent wines and culinary delicacies of the family in an equally pleasing setting.
