Origin that you can taste.

The picturesque Weinviertel offers the best conditions for wines of exceptional quality.

THE BASIS OF OUR WINES

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.

LOESS & GRAVEL

The quality of our wines is terroir driven.

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.

Our largest vineyard is also one of the best vineyards in Ebersbrunn. It is on the connecting road to the elevated road between Hohenwarth and Radlbrunn and, at 370 meters above sea level, is also our highest vineyard. Mainly loess, but also sandstone and loesskindel ensure an inhomogeneous soil profile, at the same time the soil is very fertile and stores the water well. The vineyard is planted with Grüner and Roter Veltliner, Zweigelt. Small patches of forest between the individual vineyards ensure cooling at night, which promotes fruity aromas in the wines and freshness in the wine.

Our Ried Spiegel is located north of the elevated road at an altitude of 320 to 350 meters. Only our Grüner Veltliner thrives on around 3.2 hectares of gently rolling hills. The mostly deep loess soils, partly interspersed with sand and clay, keep the soil cool and ensure good water storage capacity. The Grüner Veltliner thrives under these conditions and develops its typically peppery flavor

The South-facing vineyard borders directly on Ebersbrunn in the west. At 350 meters above sea level it is planted with Zweigeltt, Grüner and Roter Veltliner. The calcareous gravel soil was washed up by the primeval Danube thousands of years ago and is today a barren and very warm soil. A lot of Calcium and Magnesium in the Limestone give the wines a balanced acid structure and bring a lot of minerality. The result is strong, full-bodied wines.
