Our Charmanter CHARDONNAY Ried Schilling 2018 and our Kugelberg GRÜNER VELTLINER Ried Kugelberg 2018 won one of the coveted silver medals at the DWWA (Decanter World Wine Awards) in 2019 - and that with 90 points!

Elegant nose reminiscent of pears, green apples and ripe apricots. On the palate, the aromas are balanced with elegant acidity and a good length.“ – so the description of the expert jury for our Chardonnay.

Opulent and rich with aromas of apricots, candied orange peel, honeysuckle and peach. Good weight on the palate with fresh acidity balancing out the rich flavours. Textural with a savoury finish.“ – that was the great rating of the experts for our Kugelberg.

We have submitted 5 wines - 5 wines were awarded. Because also our Meinviertel WEINVIERTEL DAC Grüner Veltliner 2018, Glücksmoment ZWEIGELT Ried Schilling 2017 and the Hommage ZWEIGELT Reserve 2017 were awarded. With bronze. Which is a really good result given the very strict assessment.

The Decanter World Wine Awards are one of the most important and prestigious wine competitions in the world. The tasters are well-known sommeliers and Master of Wine - 280 in total, blind tasting up to 16,000 wines from around the world.

Of all the participating Austrian winegrowers, only 91 silver medals and 6 gold medals were awarded this year. - We are proud to be part of it!


SALON National Champion 2019

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.


Kangaroos in Austria. Zweigelt in Australia.

No kangaroos in Austria, as if. There are also Zweigelts in Australia. Zweigelt by scions from Georg Weinwurm's vineyards.

But one after the other. Georg Weinwurms wandering years once led him to Australia to the family winery Andrew Peace. The apprenticeship passed, the friendship remained. Since then, annual visits have strengthened the relationship between the winegrowing families from Austria and Australia.

What Georg took with him, apart from the friendship from Australia, was the Syrah. What Andrew took with him from Austria was the Zweigelt. After several years of strict quarantine in Australia, these scoins were finally planted. A joint distribution partner was also quickly found. And so wine lovers in Australia can now purchase the genuine Austrian Zweigelt Glücksmoment in a package with Andrews Australian Zweigelt. Because if there are kangaroos in Austria, then there should also be Zweigelt in Australia.

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!

The single vineyard Kugelberg in our little village Dobermannsdorf sparkles in Grand Gold. Don´t worry, it doesn´t blare. On the contrary, it´s our totally honest Gruner Veltliner Single Vineyard Kugelberg that sparkles.

It has not only been admitted to the Austrian SALON but has won Grand Gold at the Valtice Wine Fair this year. Second best Gruner Veltliner with 91 points in Czechias´s wine capital – that´s something! Even more, as the Valtice Wine Fair matters in the Czech Republic just as Wimbledon in Tennis.

And because our winemaker Georg Weinwurm therewith proves that he knows exactly what the Gruner Veltliner likes, even in hot years like 2018. By the way, this variety doesn´t like heat at all.

But not only the Gruner Veltliner Kugelberg scintillates in our neighbouring country. A gold medal is also rewarded to the Spitzbub Welchriesling Single Vineyard Schilling 2018, the Charming Chardonnay Single Vineyard Schilling 2018 and again to a Gruner Veltliner, the Meinviertel WEINVIERTEL DAC Gruner Veltliner 2018.
In sum, Weinwurm´s great varietal diversity.


M for More. More Muscatel. Vintage 2023.

You wanted it that way. But so did we. We plant an additional vineyard with Red Muscat. It is just a very special variety, of which we all like to have more. And because we Weinwurms have dedicated ourselves to the diversity of varieties anyway, we prefer it all the more.

Intensive years lie ahead of us. Such a young vineyard needs to be nurtured and cultivated. But as parents of small children we are used to that. Rest and sleep are something for beginners. That's why we already know one thing for sure: 2023 will be a great vintage! Simply must. Because then will be the first harvest, the maiden harvest. If you want to be there, you can register now. Hard working hands are warmly welcome on this joyful - and for us certainly historic - day.
