Company information

THE WINERY

100 % unmixed! 100 % hand-picked!

Our winery has been a family business for 150 years.

Even though we keep up with the times, our philosophy is based on

traditional values:

PASSION for nature and wine is all-important for our profession.

It is the driving force in everything we do.

CARE is what we let flow into the work in our vineyards. Steep terraced

vineyards and a variety of soils make care into a particular challenge, but

these give our wines their very special character.

RESPECT is what we have for our vines. Year after year we get the grapes

and we carefully process them using our experience and knowledge.

The Vinea Wachau was founded in 1983 as an association of Wachau

winemakers. Anchored in the Codex are natural winemaking, ensured

origin and strict self-control. We have been members of Vinea

Wachau since its founding, and take special care to preserve Wachau

wine culture. Association membership entitles us to offer quality

categories such as Steinfeder®, Federspiel® and Smaragd®.


Great wines are not simply born. They require outstanding soil,

superb vineyards and just the right varieties. Only in this way can you

produce wines with a distinctive terroir. Our farmed vineyard extends

to a length of about 10 km. Thus, the wines are characterised by

different environmental factors, such as the cooler air in Joching and

Woesendorf, and Pannonian heat that comes to the fore in Duernstein

and Loiben.

60 % are GREEN VELTLINER

30 % are RIESLING

Our selection is rounded off with:

SAUVIGNON BLANC, YELLOW MUSCAT and WHITE BURGUNDY
