Sustainability is in our hands.

Sustainability is a very serious topic. As a family that has been nurtured by this land for almost two centuries, we are dedicated to managing our winery under the guiding principles of sustainability. To us, this encompasses a commitment to the long-term vitality of the people we work with, the land we farm and the community in which we live. Our regard for the environment means that our vineyards in Langenlois are farmed under sustainable guidelines designed to protect the health of the soils, the vines, and the plants and wildlife with which we share our land. Our vineyards have earned certification under the Sustainable Austria program. Our self-chosen way of winemaking should be comprehensible for everyone. We are therefore happy to invite you to our winery so you can see for your self what our work looks like.

At a glance: “Sustainable Austria” is a seal of quality for sustainably produced wines. The wines are strictly checked and produced according to economic, ecological and social criteria. No herbicides & pesticides allowed. From the planting & cultivating of the vineyards, from harvest to bottling, the production process is screened for its sustainability. Biodiversity, economical use of water & energy, manual work and efficient use of machines are evaluated among others, as well as fair working conditions, sustainable economic practices and low intervention in the cellar. Only if all requirements are met a winemaker can label his wines with the quality seal.
