LAKE NEUSIEDL

TONI HARTL VINEYARD

The fledgling Toni Hartl winery started from a mixed-farming business in the 1980s. In 1995, Toni Hartl junior joined the business belonging to his parents, Theresia and Toni Hartl. He was new to winegrowing, but able to contribute in-depth expertise from many trips to the wine regions of Europe, South Africa and the US. He cleverly uses his knowledge about different climate conditions and the variety of the vineyard soils in order to create ideal conditions for each type of wine. His guiding principle is that “everything is merely borrowed”. Therefore, not just the grapes, but also the soils on which the vines grow, are treated with enormous respect. The Toni Hartl vineyard has been holding organic certification since 2010.

Over the years, the size of the area planted with vines has grown from half a hectare to an impressive 23 hectares. Toni Hartl grew up in the district of Reisenberg and has strong local roots. Consequently, it’s not surprising that the majority of the areas Hartl grows wine on are in Reisenberg, but also in Purbach, the Burgenland Lake Neusiedl hills. Toni Hartl constantly applies his ambition and talent to enhancing the quality of his wines. Over the past few years, his very personal style has garnered the vineyard a whole host of accolades. Toni Hartl and his partner, Monika Eder, make wines for real wine lovers and his wine cellar has wines to suit any mood or taste, whether it’s white or red.

SAALE-UNSTRUT

KLOSTER PFORTA VINEYARD

In 1137, the bishop of Naumburg moved a Cistercian monastery, endowed in Schmölln a few years previously, to the Saale river and called it St. Mariae ad Portam. Therefore, 1137 is considered the year the Pforta monastery was founded. The Cistercian monks cultivated the land and used the monastery, turning it into one of the wealthiest monasteries in the state of Thuringia during the Middle Ages. The Pfortenser Köppelberg was the first hill on which the monks grew grapes and it was documented officially in 1154 for the first time. The roots of today’s vineyard also go back to another monastery. The monks at the Naumburg Moritz monastery also cultivated wine in the district known as Saalhausen today.

The Saalhausen vineyards became important again when Naumburg citizens decided to breathe new life into local winegrowing. In 1835, they founded the Naumburg Wine Society. Their endeavours were hampered by the unwelcome spread of fungal diseases and phylloxera in 1887, so that viticulture almost came to a complete standstill. Just under 100 hectares survived from the over 10,000 hectares of vineyards that were estimated to have existed during the Ottonian era. State-owned sample vineyards with the new grafted vines were created in the Saalhausen vineyards. In 1949, the status of a winery run as a collective was conferred upon the authority in charge of wine making and Saalhausen became its headquarters. The collective became the property of Saxony-Anhalt in 1993. As a result, we see this legacy as both a mission and a commitment. Our wines are characterised by centuries of winegrowing experience and the unique nature of the locations where the grapes are cultivated. The work we do in our vineyards and in cellars is based on our traditions and history. Which is why we’re focusing increasingly on natural viticulture and returning to old, local grape varieties.

KAMPTAL

SCHLOSS GOBELSBURG VINEYARD

Schloss Gobelsburg is the oldest winery in the Danube region of Kamptal, and its winegrowing history goes as far back as the 12th century. In 1171, Cistercian monks from Burgundy were given a small farm, which gave birth to the tradition of using it as a vineyard. From the moment it was founded, the winery has not just been one of the top of its kind in the region, but also one of Austria’s leading vineyards. Since 1996, the vineyard has been run by Eva and Michael Moosbrugger (Falstaff Winemakers of the Year 2006, Golden Glass Sweden 2007, and has been in the top 100 of wineries according to Wine & Spirits Magazine since 2009).

Green Veltliner and Riesling are its most important varieties and their different characters are what interest Michael Moosbrugger. In addition to the traditional wines from Kamptal, this winemaker focuses on the different soil typologies, which manifest themselves in single-location wines. One of the specialities is applying vinification techniques from the winery’s past epochs, which spawned the tradition of the Green Veltliner and Riesling. In this case, they cultivate wine based on 19th century methods. The winery also focuses on red wine varieties like Pinot Noir, Zweigelt and St Laurent, which, twice over the past few years, has been the winner of its variety category according to the Falstaff Red Wine Guide. The Schloss Gobelsburg vineyard is a member of the Association of Traditional Austrian Vineyards, whose aim is to establish a classification of the locations in the Danube region.

SOUTH TYROL

ALOIS LAGEDER VINEYARD

The family-run Alois Lageder vineyard stands for first-class wines from South Tyrol. Based on his understanding of mother nature, Alois Lageder creates wines that embody the force and the harmony of nature. The vineyard is organic and develops its expertise consistently. It liaises with its wine producing partners and applies its knowledge to new areas.

Founded in 1823, Alois Lageder and Alois Clemens Lageder are the fifth and sixth generation of the family to manage the business.
