Our winery, our philosophy
Meinhard Forstreiter, together with his wife Isabella, took over the business from his parents in 2001 and thoroughly modernized it. He grew up in the winery and of course knows every detail, every corner of his vineyards, the microclimatic conditions, the vines and their specific characteristics.
Since then, the business has grown steadily, meanwhile the vineyard area is a proud 54 hectares, on which the Grüner Veltliner grows in all its forms – crisp, fresh, lively wines as well as smooth, almost Burgundian-looking plants with a creamy texture. There are also elegant Rieslings, a fine Sauvignon Blanc, the Gelber Muskateller, which is particularly easy to drink, and velvety red wines from Zweigelt, St. Laurent and Pinot Noir, which we sell successfully all over the world.
Today, son Daniel, the fifth generation of the family, is firmly integrated in the company. He supports Meinhard in the cellar and is responsible for his own line of wines with Grüner Veltliner Maische, Grüner Veltliner Little Mammut and Weißburgunder.
