The winery is located in the municipality of Gols in the Burgenland wine-growing region of Neusiedlersee (Austria). The traditional family has been growing wine since 1571. Worth mentioning is the "Günterkeller", which was dug into a loess slope in 1756, the year Mozart was born. The cellar, which is 52 metres long, is 12 metres underground. Senior Georg Stiegelmar is considered the doyen and pioneer of the Austrian wine scene. At the International Wine & Spirit Competition in London he was awarded "Winemaker of the Year 1995" and the prize was handed over personally by the then President Robert Mondavi (1913-2008).
For me, Lexicon from wein.plus is the most comprehensive and best source of information about wine currently available.Egon Mark
