FUNdament - a wine with fun and enjoyment factor has become SALON winner



Our FUNdament Grüner Veltliner 2018 is SALON National Champion 2019! So he is the best Grüner Veltliner in the category `Grüner Veltliner klassisch´. Naturally, Weinviertel is happy about that, because it is our parade variety. Hardly any winemaker in the Weinviertel does not have at least one Grüner Veltliner on offer. We have 4. And of that, one more SALON wine has become. Our Kugelberg 2018 is one of only 270 salon wines this year.

"And with such a difficult vintage! ..." The year 2018, it was hotter than ever before, Georg Weinwurm had to fight for the acidity. It was worth it!

We were already SALON National Champion in 2011. At that time with our Zweigelt Reserve 2009. What the Grüner Veltliner with the white wines is the Zweigelt with the red wines. The most important wine variety among red wines in Austria with the largest cultivated area. That makes us very proud! Nobody has yet managed to become national winner of SALON with these two varieties.


It is a long way to the victory. There are some tasting rounds in Lower Austria to pass first. A maximum of 188 wines from around 6,000 make it from the state award to the SALON final tasting. Then the best 3-5 wines of each category are tasted again and the winner determined.

Lower Austria`s regional wine prize is a great challenge, particularly in the category Gruner Veltliner. Because the world-wide elite of Gruner Veltliner is cultivated in Lower Austria.

WEINWURMs FUNdament Gruner Veltliner 2018 is finalist of several strict rounds of tasting of this elite. This qualifies our FUNdament as one of the top wines among the anyway bests of the world. By the way,
one of our Gruner Veltliners came out as finalist of the Lower Austria wine prize.


100 % in the home game

Weingut WEINWURM
We submitted six wines. We got six gold medals back. The Poysdorf Wine Parade is the most important regional wine tasting. The wine associations from the districts of Mistelbach, Gänserndorf, Korneuburg and even from the Czech Republic and Slovakia send their best wines to Poysdorf to be judged by an expert jury.

This 100 per cent confirmation of the quality of our variety is a great pleasure, especially in the home game!

For the first time this year, we have participated in the FRANKFURT INTERNATIONAL TROPHY and are delighted to have received a GOLD and SILVER medal!
 
At the beginning of April, more than 2.250 products from 40 countries were tasted in Frankfurt am Main.
 

GOLD -  for our Zweigelt Reserve 2015
 
This Zweigelt Reserve is one of the masterpieces of Georg Weinwurm and a hommage to former generations. Accidentally planted in the early 50ies, this wine mirrors the aspiration to pursue an unconventional path with the highest standards in mind. Produced of selected grapes, matured for 12 months in Barrique barrels, full of character, fruit and rafinesse. We have been producing continous quality for years and gained a lot of awards with this exceptional wine.

 
 
A rainbow of aromas, frish, crisp and young. A FUNdamental companion to great parties and small victories, pairing light deserts and profound discussions, for lust and love, for you and me. Rooted in the fertile earth of the Weinviertel, meticulously vinificated by winemaker Georg Weinwurm.
Georg Weinwurm masters the art of winemaking and proves that excellent wines have not necesseraly be expensive. The Gruner Veltliner of our newcomer series FUNdament is a young, crisp wine which has honestly deserved the silver medal.

 
Have a look at the new descriptions on our back labels! For some wines we use the new bottles with a new design right now. We will talk about this in more detail during the next weeks.
