Waltz Martin

The winery "Winzerhof Martin Walzer" is located in the municipality of Gneixendorf, a district of Krems, in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region Kremstal. The parental business was taken over by Martin Walzer in 2009. A special feature is the 130-meter-long former monastery cellar of the Aldersbach Monastery in Bavaria dating from the 14th century. The vineyards comprise nine hectares of vineyards in the areas of Gebling, Haide, Kobel and Wolfsgraben. They are exclusively planted with white wine varieties such as Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Rivaner, Chardonnay and Gelber Muskateller. They are cultivated in a natural way according to ecological principles. The grapes are selected and sorted by hand. After a cool fermentation of the musts, the wines are aged in traditional wooden barrels and stainless steel tanks, depending on the type. There are also special bottlings of certain wines by hand in magnum bottles. The sweet wines such as Beerenauslese, Trockenbeerenauslese and Eiswein are harvested particularly gently in the third to fourth harvesting pass. A bottle-fermented sparkling wine is also produced.
