The Weinviertel has not always had it easy. As the largest and therefore very inhomogeneous wine-growing region in Austria, it became the first in 2003 Districtus Austriae Controllatus. For several reasons, we decided to bottle our wines without the DAC designation of origin.
The Weinviertel is big and mighty. It goes without saying that 15,800 hectares of vineyards cannot be all of a piece. Gneiss and granite are the rustic main rock, but also calcareous sandstone and schisty clay marl can be found at our feet and those of the vines. This is how it looks with us.
Pannonian strings are drawn here! And that for thousands of years. “Pannonian” means that the Weinviertel is thermally continental and hygric more oceanic. Doesn't really mean much to you now, does it? Neither do us. But the main thing is that our grapes know what to do with
a chilled annual average temperature of +9 to +10 ° C
an illuminating sunshine duration of 1,750 to 1,900 hours per year and
an annual rainfall of 400 to 600 mm, which makes us a little thirsty now and then.
