What we want is to craft wines that reflect the year,
the soil and the special microclimate of Wachau.
The subtle nuances of each single vineyard are to be experienced and tasted in their multi-layered uniqueness. This presupposes multi-pass manual picking of premium-quality, physiologically highly ripe grapes; careful grape processing, traditional upbringing of the wines in large oak casks; and aiming for naturalness and distinctiveness by doing consistently without chaptalization, fining and concentration.
Our vinification is based on the Codex Wachau guidelines.
We compare the vintage cycle and vinification to the birth of a human being. The wine also requires affection, care and the guidance to perfection.
