Rudi Pichler:
Our family has been involved with viticulture in the Wachau for many generations. The main building at Wösendorf No. 38, first documented in 1575, came into our possession in 1884. In 1904, the small agricultural farm was taken over by Johann Pichler; later, it was passed to Rudolf Pichler Sr., who in turn passed it on to his son, Rudolf Jr. Rudi III took over the reigns in 1997.

Our family has been involved with viticulture in the Wachau for many generations. The main building at Wösendorf No. 38, first documented in 1575, came into our possession in 1884. In 1904, the small agricultural farm was taken over by Johann Pichler; later, it was passed to Rudolf Pichler Sr., who in turn passed it on to his son, Rudolf Jr. Rudi III took over the reigns in 1997. In 2004, along with the construction of the new cellars at Marienfeldweg 122, a working area designed to modern quality standards was created. Currently, we operate 12.5 hectares of vineyards, with grapes from an additional 3 hectares utilized through contracts with other vintners. Grüner Veltliner represents 65% of our vineyards, with Riesling totaling 30%, and the remaining 5% made up of Weißburgunder (Pinot blanc) as well as other varieties. All of these are vinified in the Vinea Wachau quality categories of Steinfeder, Federspiel and Smaragd. Read less

Rudi Pichler, Jr. took over the family estate in 1997 and since then has convincingly demonstrated that he belongs in the top rank of Wachau winegrowers. Pichler rejected enological school, and opted instead for hands-on training. He furthered his education by tasting wines from around the world: "I learned winemaking by winetasting," Pichler says. He is one of the few producers in the Wachau who favors macerating his white wine grapes with the skins. He believes it increases the expression of terroir and brings better structure and harmony to the wine. Pichler is fanatic about making wines that express terroir. "For me, the highest aim is to get the earth in the bottle," he says. Valley and hillside sites as well as high-lying terraces mark the aroma-spice complexity of this wine, which offers pure, sophisticated drinking pleasure.

Pichler's painstaking selection is reflected in crystal-clear, complex and ageworthy wines, but they nearly always need time in bottle to reveal their many facets. Steve Tanzer, The International Wine Cellar. The Pinot Blanc (Weissburgunder in German) is the most accessible of Pichler's 2005s. A fascinating synthesis of Wachau intensity and richness with the clean, cool elegance of Pinot Blanc. A fabulous dry ustrain wine!
