WINE GROWING CHARACTERS
INSPIRED BY ITS
TERROIR AND ITS PEOPLE
`Weingut am Berg’ is located in the idyllic village of Mittelberg in the Austrian region called Kamptal. The winery covers several hectares of land and is run by the Gruber family.
Weingut am Berg is shaped by three types of soil – prehistoric rock, loess and clay. During the summer there are hot days and chilly nights; with autumn bearing long, sunny periods. This is typical for this region, and these contrasting conditions give the Kamptal wines their unparalleled, crystal-clear, mineral character.
Our vision and idea is to craft wines that are textural, complex and fitting for every kind of food. To reach our goal, we take grapes from a handful of specially selected vineyard sites around Mittelberg and Langenlois. Each selection contributes unique flavours and aromas to the wine. The resulting wine provides complexity and depth.
The Schoedl Family Winery is owned by three siblings, who create wines of distinctive characters with great respect for nature.
Embedded in the gentle hilly landscape of the East-Austrian area called Weinviertel is the placid wine village of Loidesthal, where wine has been produced for several generations. The calcareous loess soils of our organic cultivated vineyards offer us optimal conditions to grow typical Austrian grape varieties. In addition to some Burgundy grape varieties, we produce Grüner Veltliner, the flagship grape of our winery and the entire region.
The combination of organic cultivation, tender handwork and sensitive vinification gives the wines the chance to grow to their full potential and to accompany kitchens worldwide.
All of our wines and sparkling wines are distinguished by their dry, lively and fresh character, which reflects not only their origin, but also our passion and energy.
SCHIST, ALTITUDE &
Located in Austria’s highest-lying wine region Sausal/Südsteiermark, the town of Kitzeck
is home to the SCHAUER winery – a family business where tradition, vertiginous single vineyards, sustainable philosophy and wines full of elegance and finesse are the order of the day.
The cultivation of vines in this region is a particularly labour-intensive feat considering the steepness of the vineyards and the impressive slopes. Handwork is essential and guarantees diligent grape selection to gain the best quality grapes. In this particular wine region, Sauvignon Blanc dominates the range of grape varieties.
Sauvignon Blanc is cultivated in several ways always showcasing the smoky-spicy notes typical of the slate soils in this region.
The Haider winery from Burgenland, Illmitz is one of the greatest sweet wine makers and has achieved countless successes in the Austrian and international wine scene.
Gerhard and Theresa Haider are the fourth
generation and pride themselves with
sustainable cultivation and systematic
restraint for the work in the cellar.
On the shores of the lake Neusiedl, vines
grow on sandy gravel and black earth soils --
the foundation of sweet wines that are hard to beat when it comes to subtlety, elegance and flavour of fruit. Paired with botrytis and honey notes, flavors are created that you would not want to miss.
The Strehn Estate stands for pure, straight-
forward and distinctive Blaufränkisch wines.
Pia, Patrick and Andy, the fourth generation, are each bringing significant competences into the process of winemaking, while also taking great pleasure in working together at the winery.
The Strehn family is especially keen on working with single vineyard wines, as it shows the pure character of terroir and the grape variety Blaufränkisch. They cultivate fifty hectares of vines up to sixty years in age in Mittelburgenland, Austria’s ‘Blaufrankisch Country’ – based in the east of Austria. Protected by three hills and favoured by the warm Pannonian climate, characterful, red wines are produced on the typically heavy soils of the region.
