Falstaff Wineguide Austria/South Tyrol 2021/22

The history of the Artner winery dates back to 1650. Even the family ancestors recognised the huge potential of the region for viticulture. In what was once a mixed agricultural business, the family has increasingly focused on the production of wines with authenticity and character since the 1980s. Höflein is located in the Carnuntum wine-growing region, which stretches east of Vienna and south of the Danube to the Slovakian border. Strong loess and barren limestone soils, together with the Pannonian climate and the cooling influence of the Danube, provide ideal conditions for the vines growing here.

Since the winery was accepted into the circle of Austria's traditional wineries in 2018, there has been an even greater focus on provenance when working in the vineyard. The members of the association "Traditionsweingüter Österreich" see it as their obligation to express the characteristics of their region, their soils, their climate, their varieties and their cellars through the wines.

Hannes Artner took over the winery from his father and, as a creative pioneer, gave the business a qualitative direction from a young age. His son Peter is cellar master, and concentrates all his knowledge and passion into the wines. Hannes' brother Christoph is responsible for international sales. At the winery they all pull together, because the Artners are a family who believe in cohesion, hard work, passing on knowledge as well as learning new things and, ultimately, that it is worthwhile to never deviate from one's own quality standards. 40 hectares of vineyards are cultivated and, from the 2021 vintage on, the Artner winery will be certified as an organic winery.
