Unger Petra

The winery is located in the community of Furth nächst Göttweig in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region Kremstal. After the death of Dr. Wolfgang Unger's father in 1999, the winery was taken over by Petra Unger, who studied at the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences in Vienna (majoring in viticulture) and gained practical experience in a Californian winery. Since 2006, Petra Unger has been dedicating herself exclusively to her own vineyards (the long-term lease of the vineyards of the Göttweig Monastery was given up). The vineyards comprise 11 hectares of vineyards in the Gaisberg, Gottschelle, Hinters Kirchl and Oberfeld areas. They are cultivated to 75% with the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc, and 25% with the red wine varieties Zweigelt and Pinot Noir. The wines are produced in the three categories "Q" (fresh, light wines), "Classic" (fruity wines) and "Reserve" (full-bodied, storable wines). Among the premium wines are several Grüner Veltliner and Riesling Kremstal DAC and Kremstal DAC Reserve with different vineyard names. About 60.000 bottles of wine are produced annually. Noble brandies (fruit, wine, marc) and bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced. The winery is a member of the two winegrowers' associations 11 Frauen & ihre Weine and Traditionsweingüter Österreich.
