The Leo Alzinger winery is located in the municipality of Unterloiben in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region of Wachau. It is run by Leo Alzinger sen. (born 1946) and Leo Alzinger jr. (born 1979). Leo Jr., educated at the HBLA Klosterneuburg, with practical stays in Austrian farms, Germany and New Zealand, integrates his own ideas and continues with the same consistency what his father started - "All or nothing". The vineyards cover nine hectares of vines in the Wachau's top vineyards Burgstall, Frauenweingarten, Höhereck, Hollerin, Liebenberg, Loibenberg, Mühlpoint and Steinertal. They are 100% planted with white wine varieties, namely Grüner Veltliner (55%), Riesling (40%) and Chardonnay (5%). The best wines are vinified according to their location, which is documented by the guiding principle of the house: "We let each location have its personality". The premium wines include, for example, Riesling Smaragd Dürnsteiner Höhereck, Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Reserve (only bottled in magnums ), Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Mühlpoint and Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Loibner Steinertal. The winery is a member of the Vinea Wachau Nobilis Districtus winegrowers' association.

In the past, you needed a wealth of encyclopaedias and specialist literature to keep up to date in your vinophile professional life. Today, Wine lexicon from wein.plus is one of my best helpers and can rightly be called the "bible of wine knowledge".
