We are looking back on a year that expresses a broad range of vintage character. It was a year packed with outdoor swimming, record high temperatures and a perfect autumn.
Top 10 rating by Gault Millau and 19/20 points for the 2014 Riesling Smaragd Kellerberg; pleasing results for the Domäne Wachau.
High-quality “Weinbrand” – the brandy produced from Grüner Veltliner – looks back on a long tradition at the Domäne Wachau. A unique and distinctive expression of the Grüner Veltliner grape variety and the terroir of the Wachau.
