The winery is located in the municipality of Fels am Wagram in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region of Wagram. The traditional family has been growing grapes since 1794. Today, the winery is run by Franz Sauerstingl Jr., who has been responsible for the cellar since the 2002 vintage. The vineyards cover 12 hectares, among others in the two vineyards Brunnthal and Scheiben on mineral-rich, sandy-loamy soils, which allow deep rooting of the vines. Around 90% of the vineyards are planted with the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Pinot Blanc and Roter Veltliner, and the red wine varieties Zweigelt, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon.
For me, Lexicon from wein.plus is the most comprehensive and best source of information about wine currently available.Egon Mark
