Walek Gerhard

The winery is located in the municipality of Poysdorf in the Lower Austrian wine growing region Weinviertel. The traditional family has been growing wine here since 1870. Today the business is run by Gerhard and Helene Walek. A wine school founded in the 1980s is affiliated. More than 20 grape varieties are cultivated here, some with several clones each. A service for the planting of vines is offered. There is also a show vineyard. The production vineyards cover 16.5 hectares, 60% of which are planted with the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner, Pinot Blanc, Riesling, Chardonnay, Welschriesling and Sauvignon Blanc, and 40% with the red wine varieties Zweigelt, Blauer Portugieser and Roesler. Quality criteria are reduced yields and healthy, fully ripe grapes. Premium wines include, for example, Weinviertel DAC (Grüner Veltliner), Riesling Premium and Zweigelt Premium. Fine spirits (grape marc, yeast, wine, pear) and grape juices from organic farming are also produced. The winery is a member of the winegrowers' association Weinmarkt Poysdorf.
