Jamek Josef

The winery is located in the community of Joching in the Lower Austrian wine growing region Wachau. Attached is a restaurant with a view of the vineyards and the neighbouring Danube. The origin goes back to the year 1910, when Anton Jamek bought the first vineyards and barrels. The business was expanded by his son Josef Jamek (1919-2011) and developed to its current size. He was one of the founding fathers of the Vinea Wachau Nobilis Districtus Association in 1983. The acquisition of the Klaus vineyard, predestined for Riesling, in 1959 was a groundbreaking step. From there, he bottled the first Riesling in 1960, single-varietal, single vineyard and natural. This was a very courageous and innovative decision for that time. Josef Jamek is considered a pioneer and doyen of the Austrian wine scene. The winery is often called "JJJ", which stands for Josef, Jamek and Joching. Since 1996 the business has been run by Hans Altmann (son-in-law) and his wife Jutta.
