The family winery is located in the north-eastern part of the Weinviertel, the Austrian appellation famous for Gruner Veltliner. A varietal grown almost exclusively in Austria, this is a fabulous wine to try if you love high acid whites like Sauvignon Blanc, unoaked chardonnay, white wines from Northern Italy, or Sancerre. Third generation Winemaker, Georg Weinwurm runs the winery with his wife Lisa and with the eager assistance of their young children Hannah and Paul.
In the 1950s, Georg's grandfather Anton Weinwurm planted his first vineyard. Today the family cultivates 28 hectares of vines planted with a wide variety of native grape varieties. Lively, powerful, and charming would be the description of Georg if he were a wine. During his apprenticeship, Georg traveled extensively but remained deeply rooted in the Weinviertel and the family business. The months with Andrew Peace in Australia and his experience with renowned Austrian winemakers are the foundation for Georg's work today. His wines are an expression of quality and joie de vivre. He is always striving to create something special. Georg lets the terroir speak for itself - the best Weinviertel soil. Georg's wine is not just a drink, but a living cultural asset, far away from monotonous mass-produced white wines that often fill the shelves.
