Sustainability is in our hands.

Sustainability is a very serious topic; and it has never been so important. The signs are clear. Especially in agriculture, we are confronted with the clearly noticeable consequences of a progressive ecological destruction. This circumstance calls for intelligent solutions and rethinking. Our family is responsible for 30 hectares of valuable natural assets. This land, which has always nurtured us, must remain healthy and intact in the interests of all generations. We must preserve the diverse flora and fauna of this cultural landscape. Together with our likeminded colleagues we try to sharpen the social awareness, because it does matter what you have in your glass or on your plate. We operate in the natural limits of the earth. The seal of quality Sustainable Austria stands for this important contribution. It is designed to protect the health of the soils, the vines, and the plants and wildlife with which we share our land. Our self-chosen way of winemaking should be comprehensible for everyone. We are therefore happy to welcome you at our winery so you can see for yourself what our daily work looks like.

At a glance: “Sustainable Austria” is a seal of quality for sustainably produced wines. The wines are strictly screened and produced according to economic, ecological and social criteria. From the planting & cultivating of the vineyards, from harvest to bottling, the production process is screened for its sustainability. No herbicides & pesticides allowed. 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 winery can label its wines with the quality seal.
