My journey is inspired by an inspiration derived from the ability of a fine wine in bridging together people and communities. Such communities as the ones that shared the space behind walls of Masvingo as can be illustrated on the label.
The quality is rooted in the soil.
The area around our winery is characterized by diverse soils: loess, sand and gravel dominate. An average annual precipitation of 550 mm and the good water storage capacity of our vineyards mean that we do not have to irrigate our vineyards. Instead, we tend our old vineyards, whose vines develop particularly deep roots.
Loess soils dominate in our vineyards. Loess is ground rock dust from the last Ice Age and is finer than sand. Although the individual grains are almost imperceptible to the eye, they act as perfect water reservoirs and are very stable. Loess consists of quartz, feldspar, mica and 10 to 30% lime. Its typical yellow color comes from the high iron content. On a walk through our vineyards, you can often discover meter-high loess walls, which are characteristic of our region.
The second important type of soil in our vineyards is gravel. A forerunner of the Danube, the Urdonau, originally flowed from the Krems area via Ebersbrunn through the Weinviertel. It filled up mighty gravel banks with a high lime content. Gravel soils require the vines to root particularly deeply and give wines a beautiful minerality and good acid structure.
LOESS & GRAVEL
THE BASIS OF OUR WINES.
Origin that you can taste.
The picturesque Weinviertel offers the best conditions for wines of exceptional quality.350 meters above sea level guarantee us a fresh and spicy aroma even in very warm years. The southern slopes of the Riede Hochstrasse with their deep loess soils produce particularly fruity, spicy and lively Grüner Veltliner. Our Riesling enjoys the warm soil of the Oberer Berg vineyard, whose gravel banks were washed up by the primeval Danube more than 10 million years ago. Zweigelt and Merlot grow here on the chalky gravel soils of the Kreimelberg vineyard.The southern slopes of the Riede Hochstrasse with their deep loess soils produce particularly fruity, spicy and lively Grüner Veltliner.
