Details

This tasting features three of Austria’s greatest wineries and winemakers in-store, Rudi Pichler (Theresa Pichler), Weingut Hiedler (Ludwig Hiedler Jnr) and Weingut Anita & Hans Nittnaus (Martin Nittnaus). The trio aptly represent three of Austria’s most prestigious regions: Wachau, Kamptal and Burgenland and have been instrumental in shaping the overall quality of wine not only in their respective regions, but in Austrian itself.

The Pichler family has produced wine in Wösendorf since 1884 and is now one of the most prestigious names in Austrian wine. The estate has long advocated late harvesting, crafting wines of flavoured wines expressive of their terroir. Both Hiedler and Nittnaus have been instrumental in forming the Traditionsweingüter Österreich’ Association – a group of quality conscious producers seeking to return to traditional winemaking and regional and site expression. In 2010 the group announced a classification of 52 of their best single vineyard sites in four Danube regions of Kamptal, Kremstal, Traisental and Wagram introducing the term  Erste Lagen (labelled 1ÖWT) indicate the wine was from an ERSTE LAGEN or first vineyard site, which signifies a special vineyard site classification.
