As can be proven wine has been made in the house of the family Schmelz for 5 generations. In the beginning, wine making was for the present owners, Johann and Monika Schmelz, an avocation and continuously expanded. Now their son Thomas is also fully engaged in the business. At present time the family manages 10 ha of vineyards in the Wachau area which are located between the Danube villages of Woesendorf and Unter-Loiben a distance of 6 km. The Production We produce 60.000 bottles a year; a small amount of the grapes are bought from neighboring vintners. The Climate and Soil The micro-climate in the Wachau area - and the different geological soils provide the base for the nuances in the unique characters of the wines. From the the sandy primitive rocks (the Riesling loves this soil) to the loess and gravel soil, all play a big part in the terroir notes of wines. The Grape Varietals Our grapes varietals are 60% Grüner Veltliner, 30% Riesling. The rest is Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Blauer Zweigelt Read more »
