The winery in the 23rd district of Liesing in the Mauer district is located in the south of the Austrian capital Wien. Attached is the family-owned Heuriger, which has already been awarded the "Eco-label for Tourism" several times. The farm is run by Richard Zahel. The vineyards cover 25 hectares in the main area of Maurerberg in the Roth-Dürren and Leiten vineyards, on Nußberg in the Preußen, Rosengartl and Langteufel vineyards on the slopes to the Danube, as well as in Oberlaa on the Laaerberg. The white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc make up about 60% of the vineyards, and the red wine varieties St. Laurent, Zweigelt, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon make up 40% of the vineyards, which is very high for Wien. In addition, genetically valuable vine material of the rare varieties Orangetraube and Roter Riesling is cultivated in our own model vineyards. The vineyards are consistently cultivated according to ecological principles, which is symbolised by a butterfly in the winery logo.
There is a vast number of sources on the web where one can acquire knowledge about wine. But none has the scope, timeliness and accuracy of the information in the encyclopaedia at wein.plus. I use it regularly and rely on it.Sigi Hiss
