The winery "Winzerhof Martin Walzer" is located in the municipality of Gneixendorf, a district of Krems, in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region of Kremstal. The parental farm was taken over by Martin Walzer in 2009. A special feature is the 130-metre-long former monastery cellar of the Aldersbach Abbey in Bavaria, dating from the 14th century. The vineyards cover nine hectares of vines in the Gebling, Haide, Kobel and Wolfsgraben vineyards. They are planted exclusively with white wine varieties such as Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Rivaner, Chardonnay and Gelber Muskateller. The vineyards are cultivated according to organic principles. The grapes are picked 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 Beerenauslesen, Trockenbeerenauslesen and Eisweine are harvested particularly gently in the third or fourth harvest. A bottle-fermented vintner's sparkling wine is also produced
