Falstaff Wine Guide Austria 2024/25

A unique part of Austrian wine culture has been flourishing in the centre of Krems on the Danube since 1452 - the Weingut Stadt Krems. Historically, it originated from two sources: firstly, from the property of the so-called "Bürgerspitalstiftung" - founded in 1210 by the Babenberg Duke Leopold VI, who bequeathed substantial donations to the hospital, including vineyards - and secondly, from the generous bequests of the Imperial Burgrave of Krems, Ulrich von Dachsberg, who donated vineyards to the city as early as 1452. With more than 550 years of history, Weingut Stadt Krems is one of the oldest wine producers in Austria and Europe. Since 2003, the winery has been run by Fritz Miesbauer, who, together with a young, ambitious team, has turned the friendly but somewhat ossified winery into a model business. Fritz Miesbauer was named "Winemaker of the Year" by Falstaff magazine. As a member of the Austrian Traditional Wine Estates (ÖTW), the estate has the privilege of cultivating Austria's most important vineyards. The 40 hectares of vineyards within the city limits include historical sites such as Weinzierlberg, Schreck, Wachtberg and Grillenparz. These historic vineyards in Stein and Krems are meticulously tended with sensitivity and a hands-on approach. The result is unique wines full of character. Only through careful processing of the grapes and minimalist vinification can the distinctive character of the vineyards be captured. This is also reflected in the range of soils, from the calcareous gravel conglomerate of the Grillenparz site, the slate amphibolite of the Schreck site, the loess terraces, the gneiss of the Wachtberg site to the barren gravel and gneiss of the Weinzierlberg site. It is the combination of the vineyards, with their great diversity of soils, the favourable climate and, last but not least, the winemakers, that produces such a wide range of excellent wines.
