The winery is located in the centre of the municipality of Spitz an der Donau in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region of Wachau. Built in the 13th century, the Mauritiushof served as a reading farm for the monks from Niederalteich around 600 years ago. The name has its origins in the neighbouring parish church, which is dedicated to St. Mauritius. The property came into the possession of the Gritsch family in 1799 and has been run by Franz-Josef Gritsch, the seventh generation of the family, since 2009. Five flats are available for rent. Four (named after a vineyard) are located in the historic Mauritiushof. One is located in the modern Kalmuck cellar (pictured below), the front of which is adorned with an innovative glass granulate façade with the Kalmuck pattern. While the wine matures and is stored down in the cellar, guests can spend a holiday in the "kalmuck LOFT" holiday flat in the middle of the unique Wachau landscape.

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".
