This year we participated for the first time in the FRANKFURT INTERNATIONAL TROPHY and are very happy about a GOLD and a SILVER medal!

More than 2,250 products from 40 countries were tasted in early April in Frankfurt am Main.

GOLD - for our Zweigelt Reserve 2015!
This Zweigelt Reserve is one of the masterpieces of Georg Weinwurm and a homage to past generations. In the fifties randomly planted, this wine reflects the joy to go with the highest standards even unconventional ways. From selected grapes matured in barrique barrels for 12 months, full of character, fruit and refinement.
For years, we produce the same quality and reap many awards with this special wine.

A rainbow of aromas, fresh, crispy, young. A FUNdamentaler companion for grand paries and small victories, ro pair lieght desserts and deep conversations, lust and love, you and me. Deeply rooted in the good earth of the Weinviertel, carefully vinificated by wine grower Georg Weinwurm.
Georg Weinwurm masters his craft and proves that excellent wines do not have to be expensive. The Grüner Veltliner of our new starter series FUNdament is a young, bubbly wine that has earned the silver medal.

Here you have also got a little insight into the new texts of our back labels. There are already a few wines in the new bottles and the new designs. We will tell you more in the next weeks.


What wine expert Jancis Robinson says about our wines

Weingut WEINWURM
In December 2017 we sent a selection of our wines to Jancis Robinson to Manchester (GB).
Here is the wine rating:

Weissburgunder Reserve 2015
Looks more golden, smells rounder and deeper. Brioche and buttery and lychee syrup. Rich and plump, moving with sensuous laziness around the mouth – the perfect wine for a roasted chicken and caramelised parsnips. (TC) 16.5

Like their Grüner, lightly spritzy. Pears and cream and lots of lemon zest, with a bit of white citrus pith grated in for good measure. There’s a weight and a hint of richness, a hint of shimmer. Very neat, lovely spread and presence on the mid palate, and pretty good length. (TC) 16.5

[link:3]Roter Muskateller Ried Schilling 2016[/link:3]
Grapey and floral, elderflower on the nose and palate with a green-grassy, green-gooseberry-like acidity in the middle. Dry. Finishes softly. (TC) 16.3

[link:10]Grüner Veltliner Ried Schilling 2016[/link:10]
Very light, fine spritz in the glass and on the palate. Smells, and tastes, like a bowl of fresh chopped cucumber and dill in Greek yogurt. With a tiny bit of pear sweetness, and pear graininess. Rounded and almost cushioned in the middle, but more stony and defined toward the end. (TC) 16.3

[link:11]Weissburgunder Ausbruch 2015[/link:11]
Smells of apricot jam and melted butter. You could spread this on a hot scone with a dollop of cream. Lusciously sweet, apricots dripping in syrup, but with a decent wash of acidity to back it up. (TC) 16.3

Zweigelt Reserve 2015
Lightly scented. Black cherries across the palate with a very upright, foot-tapping acidity. Very smart tannins tapering to the finish, slim-fit and elegant. Impeccably smooth with a purity to the dark fruit. Little bit of vanilla oak as the wine warms up to room temperature. Deliciously fresh and one of the most food-friendly wines I’ve had this year. (TC) 16.5
