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!



Grand gold sparkles from Kugelberg

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.


Hommage, Abendrot (sunset glow) and Herzblut (heart´s blood): If it´s red wine – it must be WEINWURM´

A Weinviertel wine grower does not live from Veltliner alone. But to vinificate red wines at the same quality level as whites makes Weinwurms extremely proud.

Particularly our Zweigelt Hommage 15 won brilliant ratings in the Falstaff Red Wine Guide. With 91 points Peter Moser described our former Hommage ZWEIGELT Reserve 2015 with „inviting berry fruit“, „mineral finish“ and finally as „multi-faceted food pairing“.

As if this wouldn´t be enough reason for crows of delight it has to be mentioned that this Zweigelt is only vinificated in perfect years and, up tp now, every vintage has convinced professionals and connosieurs alike. Have a look at a short survey: 90 points at the IWC Chicago in 2006, Salon winner of the category Zweigelt in 2009, listed in the Salon Austrian Wine in 2011 and with 92,6 points confirmed as best Austrian red wine in Germany at the Mundus Vini followed by the vintage 2012 winning the Premium Gold Prague Wine Challenge and IWC Tasting Chicago Gold, and now the 2015 vintage with 91 points at the Falstaff tasting, a gold medal in Frankfurt at the International Trophy and described by Jancis Robinson as follows: „„Deliciously fresh and one of the most food friendly wines I have had this year.“ In short: Weinwurms´ homage to the variety Zweigelt.

 
It would never cross our minds to rejoice about our grape diversity if we had only one excellent red wine to present. In fact there are three. At Least. The Abendrot SYRAH Ried Schilling 2016, a variety which captured Georg Weinwurm´s imagination during his practical year in Australia, and the Herzblut MERLOT Ried Schilling 2016 were Mr. Moser worth 90 points and in addition a best-buy-recommendation.

We produce Merlot since the early 90ies and it has developed to our second important red wine behind the Zweigelt. At the beginning of 2000 we have started to plant Syrah. Our Syrah matures in used French 220 l for one year – Barrique barrels.
 
Rare varieties in Austria, even more rare in the Weinviertel district and rarest with high ratings by internationally known experts – that makes us happy! And our two exotic varieties could be even capable of more if you think about what Mr. Moser stated: they are „at the beginning of their development“. What could be expected in one, two or three years?
Therefore, Georg Weinwurm´s secret tipp: ensure your quantity of Australian Abendrot and Georg Weinwurm´s personal Herzblut right now.

Last but not least we have to point out the forth moment of happiness. With 89 points the Glücksmoment ZWEIGELT Ried Schilling 2017 (moment of happiness) was included in the very-good-ratings. Peter Moser descernes  bitter chocolade, herbal spices, cherries, freshness and a tiny pinch of salt in this Zweigelt.
 

To get excellent ratings at this year´s Gruner Veltliner Grand Prix made us really happy but to succeed with our red wines aswell proves that Weinwurms´variety range qualifies us as one of Austria´s top vintners.
