The Gruner Veltliner vines are grown in the Wachau, the most prestigious viticultural area in Austria. The vineyard is located on the steep terraces of the Spitzer Valley with proximity to the Danube. The temperature variation in the valley, with warmer days and cooler nights, has a significant role to play in the ripening of the berries. These diurnal temperature differences result in concentrated fruit, with naturally high balancing acidity. The vines are grown in Gneiss soils, made up of schist and granite with a high mineral content. The yields are kept low at 25 hectolitres per hectare and hand selected bunches are harvested at optimal ripeness.

The young, dynamic and modest Johann has been making elegant, defined and terroir-driven wines for a number of years and has carved out a formidable reputation - his wines are always in high demand. His five hectares of family-owned vineyards cling to the precipitous, schistous slopes of the Spitzer Valley. Johann cultivates sustainably and holds the Vinea Wachau sustainable certification. He manages the vineyards to give incredibly low yields and his production is miniscule, but despite this, his prices remain really competitive. Many wineries in Austria pick with a proportion of Botrytis-affected grapes to add sweetness, but Johann believes this distracts from the exceptional terroir he has. His wines age incredibly well, and his multi award-winning wines and rave reviews attest to his methods and approach.
