Zeilinger-Wagner

The winery is located in the community of Hohenwarth in the southwest of the Lower Austrian wine growing region Weinviertel. In 1920, grandfather Johann Wagner was one of the first winegrowers in Austria to begin bottling the wine. The long tradition of the business is proven by a 1927 vintage in the estate's own vinotheque. Today the estate is managed by Ing. Alois Zeilinger. The vineyards cover ten hectares of vines on primary rock soils and fertile alluvial loess in, for example, the Hintaus, Hochstraß, Krumpenthal, Laa, Lehen, Mühlweg and Steinbruch vineyards. They are planted with the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner, Frühroter Veltliner, Rivaner, Chardonnay, Riesling and Muskat Ottonel, as well as the red wine varieties Blauburger, Pinot Noir and Rotburger

The quality standard is based on environmentally conscious cultivation of the vineyards, voluntary yield reduction to an average of 40 hl/ha, manual harvest in several passes and gentle cellar technology. For the white wines, whole grape pressing is carried out with cool and slow fermentation. The red wines are fermented with traditional mash fermentation and remain on the mash for a longer period of time. The wines of the "Classic" series are bottled in 0.375 litre, 0.75 litre and 1.5 litre (magnum) bottles. The premium wines include Grüner Veltliner Lehen, Grüner Veltliner Winberg Weinviertel DAC, Grüner Veltliner von der Hefe, Frühroter Veltliner Hintaus, Chardonnay Hohenwarther Freiheit, as well as the red wines Pinot Noir Steinbruch and Blauburger Steinbruch. In suitable years there are also noble sweet Trockenbeerenauslese. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced.
