WINE INFORMATION

Josef Ehmoser is a leading force behind the “Sustainable Austria” seal by the Austrian Winegrowers Association, awarded for sustainable winegrowing. Applicants must pass a strict audit to earn it. Certification starts in the vineyard and encompasses the complete harvest, maturation and bottling process. Economical water and energy usage as well as use of machines are taken into consideration alongside social aspects. 

The Wagram region is a terraced ridge of loess. With fantastic views, it’s possible to see as far as the Ötscher and Schneeberg mountains. The Wagram name derives from the Middle High German: “wac” for wave or welter, and “rain” for meadow or hillside.

The loess is a gift from the ice age, collected at the edges of the primordial sea. The soil is rich in fossils and minerals, giving it a calcareous character. It also retains water effectively. Hot Pannonian weather patterns come from the southeast, while the cool of the forest district to the north has its own distinct influence. From the south, the Danube sends pleasantly cool and moist air. This latter factor brings hot summer days with cool nights. It is an ideal site for winegrowing, which has been practiced here since the Middle Ages.

The grapes are hand harvested from terraced vineyards on the hillsides surrounding Grossweikersdorf. The wine is gently pressed and aged on the lees in stainless steel tanks to preserve freshness.
