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. – Description from Dragac

  • Rudi Pichler Weissburgunder Smaragd 2014


    Creamy vanilla, elderflower and apricot notes are full and firm on the nose with a definite spice. Fresh and juicy to start, this imparts full stone fruit flavors of peach, apricot and citrus notes of lemon and grapefruit with a refreshing burst of acidity giving a lot of brightness to the palate with just a hint of almond and biscuit towards th...

The Chatham Cod  and Rudi Pichler Smaragd Riesling Terrassen 2007 is a wonderful combination of light and hearty fair that even incorporates fall colors. Here’s what’s in it (layered): Bottom:  Smoked chickpea puree Middle (mixed together): Mixture of black cabbge Baccala (...

  • Rudi Pichler Wachau Smaragd Kollmutz Weissburgunder 2001


    Light golden color, luscious bouquet of lemon, vanilla, nutmeg and honey, with a slightly viscous body showing great acid with light presence of oak, custard, apples and subtle notes of butter, lychee and pineapple, the finish constantly builds on notes of honey, melon and golden apples.

  • Rudi Pichler Riesling Smaragd Wösendorfer Kirchweg 2008


    Talk about a mismatched nose and palette!This is sweet and syrupy on the nose reminiscent of ice wine with hints of petrol. Unexpectedly rather dry on the palette with a slight zing. Pineapple, apricot and melon notes round out the finish...overall a nice sipping wine! Read More
