Ecker - Eckhof

The winery is located in the municipality of Mitterstockstall (large municipality of Kirchberg am Wagram) in the Lower Austrian wine growing region of Wagram. The traditional family business has been growing wine here since 1603. A Heuriger and a vinotheque are attached. The business is run by Bernhard Ecker and his family. The vineyards comprise 14 hectares of vineyards in the Halterberg, Hundsberg, Mordtal, Schlossberg, Steinberg, Wagram and Waasen areas. They are planted to 70% with the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner, Pinot Blanc, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Muskateller, Roter Veltliner and Frühroter Veltliner, and 30% with the red wine varieties Zweigelt, St. Laurent and Blauburgunder. We practice viticulture close to nature with, for example, the promotion of beneficial organisms. Quality criteria in the vineyard that reduce the yield are appropriate foliage work, thinning out and selective manual harvesting in several passes. The vinification is carried out gently with cooled and slow fermentation in steel tanks and wood. Speciality is the Grüner Veltliner in several variations. Other premium wines are "Weißburgunder Premium" and the red wine cuvée "Donatus" (St. Laurent, Blauburgunder). Bottle-fermented sparkling wine is also produced. The winery is a member of the Winzervereinigung Wagramer Selektion, whose chairman since 2006 is Bernhard Ecker.
