PICTURES OF THIS WINE (.jpg)

Some of our vineyards grow on Flysch. This is layered sandstone & marl. Flysch can be found along the alps and reaches here in our region its end starting from the Mountain Bisamberg and going along the hillsides around the Korneuburger bassin. Our vineyards there are for example Hundsleiten, Haidviertel and our Burggarten around the Kreuzenstein castle, where we cultivate Zweigelt.

Flysch is known for developing powerful, particularly spicy wines. This we can fully confirm. Since ever, the site Hundsleiten belongs to our family and since ever the Veltliner from here stood out for its power & spicyness.
