In our vineyards in the south-western part of the Langenlois Loiserberg, Riesling vines are rooted in mineral mica-slate soils. Grapes harvested by hand have been carefully transformed into wine and aged in large wooden barrels in our 700-year-old natural cellar. The steep and meager terraces of the Ried Loiserberg in Langenlois provide perfect conditions for this dense and mineral Riesling with aromatic depth and finesse.
The vineyard, which is situated on the south to southwest side, is laid out in terraces, reaches up to 380 m above sea level and is one of our highest sites. The vines are deeply rooted in crystalline mica schist. The Loiserberg is the most westerly elevation in Langenlois towards the Waldviertel region and therefore enjoys a very special microclimate. Even on warm summer days, the vines here are surrounded by cooler winds from the rougher Waldviertel region, which gives the wines a ripe acid structure, cool elegance and lightness.
