REGIONS & WINEMAKERS

Four regions define our wine list and menu for three months at a time. Discover the character and quality of our four winegrowing areas and winemakers here.

STYRIA

WINEGROWING REGION

Approximately 2,400 hectares in size and cultivated by about 950 winegrowers, the region is located to the south of the Leibnitz district. The winegrowing region ranges from Leibnitz along the river Mur towards Spielfeld on the Austrian-Slovenian border all the way to Schlossberg near Leutschach. Major winegrowing areas are Gamlitz, Leutschach, Glanz, Ratsch, Ehrenhausen, Silberberg, Spielfeld and Kitzeck im Sausal, which is the highest winegrowing area in the whole of Austria due to its extremely steep location. Southern Styria wine country produces some of the most high-quality white wines in Austria, but over the last few years red wine has been increasingly catching up.

Schauer Vineyard

The Schauer Vineyard is situated in the southern Styria region of Sausal, in Kitzeck. Winemaker Stefan Schauer took over his parents business in 2010 and has been running it ever since with his brother Bernhard who is in charge of marketing and operational management. They are actively supported by their parents Elisabeth and Karl, particularly in the tavern and the guest house. Located between the rivers Sulm and Lassnitz, Sausal has just slightly more to offer than other winegrowing regions: more rain, more sun and cooler temperatures at night. The soils boast an exceptionally high level of shale. The vineyards are 19 hectares in size and are cultivated almost exclusively on shale soils, some of which are on slopes with a gradient of up to 65%. Shale lends the wines a smoky, mineral and aromatic taste.

NAHE

WINEGROWING REGION

Winegrowing on the river Nahe and its tributaries Glan and Alsenz goes back 2,000 years. Protected from cold winds by the high Hünsrück hills, mild temperatures and plenty of sunshine add up to an excellent climate for winegrowing in the sunny valley that has little rainfall. Here, vines like Riesling, Rivaner and Silvaner grow on around 4,000 hectares. A rich geographical history has given the Nahe region a wealth of different soils. The vines grow on shale, volcanic porphyry, loess and clay soils. ́ The resulting variety of vines and types of wine is vast.

Lorenz Vineyard

Our philosophy involves a passion for wine. With the support of the whole family, Werner and Ulrich Lorenz are energetic and creative winemakers. Werner puts hard work and years of experience into cultivating our vineyards (which cover 45 hectares). Ulrich gives each Lorenz wine its clarity and finesse in our cellars. Our diverse range covers tangy Rieslings, creamy Burgundies to international vines such as Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay.

Our standard wines are enhanced by our TATORT >Lorenz locations such as the Kreuznacher Brückes, Paradies or Wallhäuser Johannisberg terroirs that are steeped in tradition. It’s a tradition that we’re delighted to continue by expanding our TATORT Rieslings to extract the complexity of the soil types on the Nahe above all.

RHEINGAU

WINEGROWING REGION

is unique among the 13 German winegrowing areas. Its superb locations, exceptionally favourable weather conditions and long history are the reasons for its undisputed reputation. On its 1,300-kilometre-long journey from Switzerland to the North Sea, the Rhine only leaves its north-westerly course once (at Mainz) to veer off towards the south west for 35 kilometres. This translates into a sunny south to south-west position for the hills on the northern side of the Rhine. The Rheingau region extends from Wicker to Lorchhausen.

Spreitzer Vineyard

The Spreitzer Vineyard is one of the oldest in Oestrich and has been making wine since 1641. The vineyard has been managed by brothers Andreas and Bernd Spreitzer since 1997. The 21-hectare vineyard is planted with the two classic Rheingau Riesling (97%) and pinot noir (3%) vines. The grapes for the special quality wines are picked by hand to guarantee that only mature fruit reaches the wine press which is then pressed using the whole cluster technique. Because the must is consistently pre-clarified, this method promises a minimum of trub and bitter substances. The must is then stored in a wooden barrel or temperature-controlled stainless steel tank for fermentation. As a result, fermentation is very slow and consistent, enabling us to retain the natural fruit. The vineyard’s goal is to cultivate vines in the most natural way possible.

Therefore, intensively revegetates the area to control the microclimate. Every second row is planted and the grain sown in winter. The vines are only pruned slightly, which produces a smaller harvest but one of exceptional quality.

MIDDLE RHINE

WINEGROWING REGION

The Middle Rhine is a rugged, attractive area. The epitome of the romantic Rhineland countryside: 40 castles along 65 kilometres of the river and UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2002. Winegrowing has been typical of our region since Roman times. Shale rock, steep slopes, which can often only be used as terraces, are ideal territory for characterful and multifaceted wines. Nevertheless, winegrowing areas in the Middle Rhine are on the decline. The Middle Rhine winegrowers’ aim is to halt this development and maintain this tradition which is thousands of years old. And they use their experience, tenacity and passion to do so.

Toni Jost Vineyard, Hahnenhof

The Toni Jost Vineyard has been in the family since 1832 and Cecilia Jost is today the seventh generation to run it. The vineyard has always concentrated on expanding its fields in the premium Bacharacher Hahn location. Today we are the sole proprietors of this shale terroir, which is why the vineyard is called Hahnenhof. The vineyard is spread over 15 hectares; 80 percent is planted with Riesling, with pinot noir and white Burgundy on the remaining 20 percent. Shale, the Rhine and Riesling define the character of our wines together with the fruit and minerality. Shielded by the Rhine Engtal, our vines grown on shale from the Devonian age. Our special location in the northern winegrowing areas guarantees a long maturation period of grapes with a distinctive aroma.

PRIVATE PARTIES

The location is superb, the atmosphere relaxed and so much more than just a table for four. You can book Kleines Jacob exclusively for a few hours for an unforgettable birthday party, a business anniversary, or an enjoyable family event.
