Top-class Austrian appellation – historic winemaking area --
Located in the exclusive production district of The Wachau, an area of around 15 kilometres in length on the banks of the Danube, the Rainer Wess winery draws from a collection of vines on what are some of Europe's most fertile soils.
The landscape surrounding the vineyard evidences the local history of the region, recognised as one of the oldest cultural districts in Europe. Stone terraces, fortified hills, evidence of ancient fruit groves and a whole host of traditional customs ensure that locals are very proud of their heritage, a mantra they maintain when it comes to wine production.
The Wachauer Gruner Veltliner, an aromatic, light and uncomplicated wine is particular evidence of this local pride. Created with grapes from the districts of Unterloiben and Durnstein, flatter sections of the valley where the alluvial soils are particularly fertile, this wine highlights the true potential that less fashionable wine making nations such as Austria possess.
