  • We work sustainably and respectfully in partnership with people, vines and nature, and are continuously learning how not to leave a large biological footprint on the planet, but rather just great wines.


     The weather in 2016 kept us under stress for a long time and it remained suspenseful until the end. Due to the mild winter, the vegetation started very early, which led to a bud break as early as middle of April. In the last week of April, however, there was a cold air burst with late frost. The result was a severe frost damage in Langenlois and Gumpoldskirchen. The late spring and the summer months were characterised by a sultry climate with a lot of rainfall and few heat periods. Biologically working winemakers were therefore extremely eager to achieve a proper canopy management. The unusually warm, sunny and dry September finally led to a satisfying finish with excellent maturity of the grapes. The cooler nights at the end of the month induced an optimal development of the aroma. Due to the mild weather, there was no pressure during harvest. The result were grapes with perfect maturity and nutrient supply. The work in the cellar ran smoothly. Healthy grapes with moderate sugar content produced clear, medium-bodied wines with beautiful varietal and regional typicity.


    Aromas of crisp, fresh Topaz apples, backed by the typical "veltlinerische“ spiciness. On the palate the 2016 Lois presents itself clear, elegant, supported by a surprisingly harmonious acidity. The Grüner Veltliner Lois is suitable as a worthy aperitif or as a companion for crisp salads. This wine is meant to be enjoyed rather by bottle than by glass!

    'This wine leads with the fruity scent of fresh Conference and yellow pear. Its slightly spritzy palate comes with some yeasty, herbal savoriness and finishes fresh and dry.'
