the vineyards of Poysdorf
single vineyard Hermannschachern

The north eastern part of the Weinviertel, around Poysdorf, is well known for its spicy Grüner Veltliner and expressive Burgundy wines. The limestone cliffs of Staatz give excellent conditions for minerally wines. Sandy clay soil and stony loam create high quality wines. The climatic effects of the Pannonian climate provide the region with hot summers and cool September nights.

respect for the nature

The loving care of the vineyards and the tender handling of the nature are the most important things for us. We keep an eye on our vines and grapes every day. In accordance with the nature we want to capture the character of the wine in the bottle.

The best example for our philosophy is our impressive vineyard Steinberg planted as Stockkultur. Since 2007 we have been producing our best wine here, the Neustifter Stockkultur, which is 100 % handmade. More information…

Hundreds of years ago this was a pasture for pigs. This is the origin of the name Saurüsseln (pig’s snout). The name also became a popular brand which stands for fresh and fruity Grüner Veltliner. We also plant a spicy and mineral Zweigelt there.

This vineyard was the dowry of Karl Neustifter’s grandmother. In former times goats were kept here. Nowadays this is the right soil for burgundy grapes.
