Weissburgunder Langenlois 2018
Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc) has a long tradition in the estate. Dr. Bruno Hiedler was the first winemaker to cultivate the variety in the Danube area in 1955. It was a time when small grapes were anything but 'en vogue'. Since then, Weissburgunder has been deeply rooted in our soils and our history and is thriving in a hand full of vineyards around Langenlois.
