DIE WEINWURMs

In the 1950s, the miller Anton Weinwurm planted his first vineyard with Blauer Zweigelt. Thus he laid the foundation stone for the red varieties for which the winery is known today. Meanwhile, 25 hectares (62 acres) are cultivated, which are planted with Welschriesling, Grüner Veltliner, Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Muscat Ottonel, the rare Roter Muskateller, Rivaner, Blauer Zweigelt, Blauer Portugieser, Merlot and Syrah.

Since 2001 Georg Weinwurm is master of the vineyards. His idea is to give back attention to the rare varieties. The Weinviertel is the most diverse agricultural area in Austria, and traditionally it is diverse also in viticulture. Thus, next to the main grape variety Grüner Veltliner, Georg Weinwurm is dedicated as well to the Red Muscat, the Rivaner or the Syrah. The conviction for diversity found Georg Weinwurm in Australia. After he graduated from agro-economic High School, he went on to practice at renowned Austrian winemakers and Andrew Peace in Australia. The combination of these experiences culminated in the operating philosophy Georg Weinwurm as certified cellar master now follows strictly: working in harmony with nature and taking into account the terroir to show the best of the Weinviertel. Numerous awards at home and abroad have already confirmed his work.
