Naturally & Biodynamic
Unser Boden ist unser wertvollstes Gut! Deshalb kümmern wir uns gut um ihn.
The soils are our most precious asset.
In our vineyards, you can find a lot of different soil types, that’s why the area "Weinviertel" is very exciting. The biggest part takes over "Loess" and "Loam". It is a clastic, predominantly silt-size sediment that is formed by the accumulation of wind-blown dust. This type of soil is predestined for our grapes. Moreover, you can discover chalky, sandy and flysch soil types.
Let nature take its course.
Today, the vineyards have grown in and around Loidesthal, Blumenthal and the area called Steinberg. Wild herbs, grasses and chamomile species grow between the vines, which help to increase biodiversity and provide living space for beneficial insects such as butterflies, ladybirds, and earthworms. It is fertilised only with natural compost. Thus, we increase the biodiversity in the vineyard and strengthen the biodynamic of the vines in a natural way against diseases.
The Weinviertel is the largest wine-growing region in Austria and is located between Vienna and the border of the Czech Republic. The region is influenced by the rivers Danube and March.
Noticeable are the latest influences of the Pannonian climate, which is characterised by hot, dry summers and dry, cold winters. This affects our grapes in a unique way: fully ripe berries combined with this spicy and refreshing acidity result in so-called "Cool Climate" wines.
