The family winery WEINWURM is located in the north-eastern part of the Weinviertel, a region influenced by Pannonian climate. Wine maker Georg Weinwurm runs the winery in third generation, energetically supported by ambitious family members. The vineyards are stocked with various grape varieties in red and white, great attention is paid to even rare varieties. We cultivate our wines in accordance with nature and in consideration of the terroir in order to reflect the top quality of the Weinviertel in our wines.
In the 1950s, Georg´s grandfather Anton Weinwurm planted his first vineyard with Grüner Veltliner, which soon turned out to be Blauer Zweigelt. He laid the foundation for the variety of red varieties for which the winery is known today. The WEINWURMs see this as a lucky hit and named the wine from this vineyard Glücksmoment - lucky moment.
Meanwhile 28 hectares are cultivated, which are planted with Welschriesling, Grüner Veltliner, Chardonnay, Weissburgunder, Muskat Ottonel, 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 in Australia. The months at Andrew Peace in conjunction with the experience of renowned Austrian winemakers are the cornerstone of the operating philosophy that cellar master Georg Weinwurm follows now: in harmony with nature, taking into account the terroir to show the best of the Weinviertel.
