Since 2004 we also cultivate vineyards in Vienna. This is not really a big change as we live directly on the border to Vienna and our Viennese vineyards are closer than some of our Weinviertel sites.

However, our Viennese vineyards are a particularly nice challenge. The sites Herrenholz and Praschen are situated on a high plateau on the montain “Bisamberg” and there they are enthroned above our capital city. The limestone soil gives a fine elegance to our wines. We make 3 different wines here:

Our Wien.1 – a crisp, light blend made of our white grapes Grüner Veltliner, Pinot Blanc and Riesling
Wien.2 a red fine fruity blend made of Zweigelt and Pinot Noir and the third wine we make here is a powerful Pinot Noir Reserve.

from Vienna!

That a wine can be so fragile and fine-boned, yet so complex and deep! I adore Pinot Noir – especially from the calcareous Herrenholz vineyard in the convex Viennese site at the foot of the Bisamberg. Pine needles and forest floor with fresh strawberries and subtle toasty notes. This is how a Pinot for me should be!
