Retzl Erwin - Verkostungsraum

The cellar is laid out on three levels, so pumping is avoided. After the juice extraction, the mash is individually adapted to the grape material and pressed very gently. The wines mature exclusively in stainless steel tanks in the approximately 400-year-old brick vault of the wine cellar. The premium wines include various Rieslings and Grüner Veltliner with vineyard names. The cellar stores wines dating back to 1903, which are only opened on special occasions.
