Large winegrowers' cooperative in the Lower Austrian winegrowing region of Wachau, based in Dürnstein, which was founded in 1938 by purchasing the former vineyard of the Starhemberg family under the name "Winzergenossenschaft Wachau". It was then renamed "Freie Weingärtner Wachau" in 1990 and has been operating under the new name "Domäne Wachau" since 2008. Johann Martin was elected as the new chairman at the 2009 general assembly. The managing director is Roman Horvath (Master of Wine). Heinz Frischengruber is responsible for oenology. The philosophy is as follows: Domäne Wachau strives for the most authentic character of origin possible in the wines. The Wachau and the large individual sites or vineyards should be expressed precisely and clearly. It is also important to have long and stable fruit, which then turns into complex ripeness notes after a few years in appropriately high-quality wines. The high storability of selected Smaragden wines is an explicit goal in the winemaking process due to this approach. The entire production process is carried out according to certified sustainable criteria of Nachhaltig Austria.
