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.


All best things come in thirteens !

13 is a lucky number. Since 2006, thirteen years in a row, our wines were accepted at the SALON Austria Wine, the championship of Austrian Wine. This year we have even produced two SALON wines: the Meinviertel WEINVIERTEL DAC Meinviertel 2017 and the Spitzbub WELSCHRIESLING Spitzbub 2017.

Our Weinviertel DAC was accepted at the SALON already fo the second time. But the Welschriesling premieres in the liga of Austria´s 270 best wines. In fact, only 270 wines from Austria make it through the multistage tasting. It is not without reason that the SALON is regarded the hardest wine rating in Austria. We are really proud to be continously admitted every year since 2006, and, as a matter of fact, even with more than one wine, just as this year. And I almost forgot to mention: the Zweigelt Reserve was already SALON winner. SALON winners represent the 16 absolutely best wines in Austria.

And why is our lucky number also yourss?: You can be sure that WEINWURMs wines rank among the absolutely best in Austria and are above all of consistent quality.

Weinwurm's highest quality usually ends up in the highest awards. That is why Salon Austrian Wine is not a coincidence at Weinwurm's. Since 2006, our wines are regularly, almost every year, among the 270 best of Austria. This time the Weissburgunder Ried Schilling 2016 passed the toughest wine rating. Weinwurm's largest variety is also valid for the category "Burgundersorten body", because the connoisseur does not live by the Grüner Veltliner alone.
