Laid-back but full of life, we consider our wines to be the memories of a culture. They have a story to tell. They carry memories, spark sensations, arouse and excite. Wine lives and changes and is always unique.
„Ensouled wine to me is joy, delight, muse and recreation. It enriches my thoughts and conversations.”
For the creation of great wine there is no Archimedean formula or magical equation. There is simply the vineyard, its excellence and the surrounding terroir that gives us a matrix of possibilities. Great wine is an expression of creative, lyrical, impregnable human passion. A thought that appeals to us because we, too, believe that only love and devotion can bring you closer to perfection. The Steinkeller - “stone cellar” – is our vivid symbol of this pursuit. A place to foster our virtues. Here the Grand Cru’s and VINZ Ancient Vine wines mature and ripen in concrete eggs and amphorae.
Great wines – small barrels. Wine and wood have a natural affinity for each other, yet the presence of tannins and addition of spice and complexity require a delicate approach. Our VINZ and MONTONIA wines come by their elaborate and subtle coolness, depth and structure from maturation in barriques, tonneaux and fuder.
Wine lives… It breathes, changes, matures and ripens. The Schatzkammer, our treasure chamber, bears witness to this as our own liquid library. Memories of great vintages tell of hot, unforgettable summers, vibrant pastel colours and crystal clear skies. But also of an aura of dramatic stories about when magnificent wines had to be wrested from nature with fierce passion and determination.
