Weingut Schloss Gobelsburg, 1ÖTW “Ried Heiligenstein” Riesling

Schloss Gobelsburg is just one of those properties that make you stand back in awe: The Zwettl Monastery secured its first piece of grape-growing land in 1171, and the Gobelsburg castle that overlooks them dates back even further! From the time the monks were gifted these vines up until the 1700s, a flurry of financial duress and change had occurred with no less than 19 different families called the estate/castle home. Fast forwarding a bit more, after the two World Wars, it was Father Bertrand Baumann who restored Schloss Gobelsburg to its former glory, and, as of 1996, the property has been run by Michael Moosbrugger and Willi Bründlmayer. 

Schloss Gobelsburg’s three hectares of vines (~35 years of age) within Heligenstein are in the section facing entirely south. This full exposure to the blazing sun, plus a slightly later harvest, endows the crop with immense concentration and flavor profile. In the cellar, grapes are whole-cluster pressed and maturation on lees occurs for 18 months in 25-hectoliter Austrian casks.

Northeastern Austria


Considered by most to be the oldest growing zone in Austria, Weinviertel is also, geographically, the largest in the country and covers the vast, northeastern expanse of Lower Austria, stretching from the western border of Slovakia, following the Danube inland and veering up to the southern border of Czechia. Its name, which translates to “wine quarter,” reflects the region’s rich, ancient wine heritage and, according to the Weinviertel DAC website, there are “7,000 years of artifacts to prove it.”

Northeastern Austria


Austria’s Wachau appellation is the country’s most acclaimed region. About an hour northwest of Vienna along the Danube River, the vista of the steep, terraced vineyards of the Wachau creates a magnificent landscape akin to a verdant, ancient amphitheater—it is a UNESCO World Heritage site, after all. With rich and unique soils here of löess and gneiss, which lend vivid minerality to the wine.

Eastern Austria


The Burgenland appellation, running along Austria’s border with Hungary southeast of Vienna, has a diverse topography and a mix of soils, with more primary rock and slate at higher locations and dense loams in the rolling hills that extend toward the Pannonian plain.

Southeastern Austria


The region of Styria (Steiermark) is in southeastern Austria which sits near the border with Slovenia. This area is studded with long-extinct volcanoes whose deposits are a key component of the local soils and the vineyards benefit from a classic Austrian push-pull of cool Alpine air and warmer “Pannonian” currents from the east.
