On a nationwide level, our Meinviertel WEINVIERTEL DAC GrÜner Veltliner 2017 belongs to Austria´s top wines, that´s what the Salon Austrian Wine says. On a regional level, our Meinviertel WEINVIERTEL DAC Gruner Veltliner 2017 belongs to the region´s top wines, that´s what the Lower Austria Wine and the Poysdorf Wine Parade say.

It´s phantastic to come out on top of 1000s of top wines. But the international  competition is even more challenging, even more diverse. Thus, two Bronze Medals at the International Wine Challenge approve that Great Britain classifies our Meinviertel WEINVIERTEL DAC Grüner Veltliner 2017 and Liebkind WEISSBURGUNDER Single Vineyard Schilling 2017 as one of the top wines worldwide. Additionally our Hommage ZWEIGELT Reserve 2015 is one of the wines recommended wine by the IWC.

The International Wine Challenge is one of the largest wine rating events in the world. And one of the most precious and important. To be awarded a medal the wine has to undergo three tasting rounds with at least 10 educated tasters. Vintage, grape variety and region are known, apart from this the tastings are absolutely blind. Seen from that angle we consider it a great honour to rank among the best, not only on a national and regional but also on an international level.



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

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

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

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



Weissburgunder Ried Schilling - Salon 2017

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.






Weissburgunder Ried Schilling 2016 - one of the Best in Lower Austria

Weinwurm's largest varietal variety is more than just many varieties. Weinwurm's largest varietal variety is also the highest quality in all varieties. The Weissburgunder (Pinot blanc) from the Ried Schilling is the fourth best in Lower Austria. The Lower Austrian wine tasting at the Krems wine fair has decided this. Pinots are traditionally the second most important varieties after the Grüner Veltliner in the Weinviertel. And Weinwurm's pinots are in the same quality and finesse as the Veltliners. Because Weinwurm's largest varietal variety is quality for all varieties.
