Falstaff Wineguide Austria/South Tyrol 2021/22

The Johann Donabaum winery is one of the up-and-coming estates in the Wachau. The junior is actively supported by his parents in working the labor-intensive mountain and terrace sites. The estate's wines - Riesling Offenberg and Setzberg as well as Grüner Veltliner Spitzer Point - can be found on the best-assorted wine lists in the country. The rare Neuburger grape is also cultivated, and the Smaragd from the Spitzer Biern site is one of the outstanding representatives of this variety.

A small bridge over the Spitzer valley leads to the historic estate, which dates back to the 16th century. Consistent work by the entire family is the basis for optimal grapes, the basis for high-quality wines, which are characterised by soil, climate and the handwriting of the winemaker.

The estate achieved its greatest success to date in 2009 at the "Decanter World Wine Award" in London, the largest wine competition in the world: The Riesling Smaragd Setzberg 2007 won the international Riesling trophy and was thus named the best Riesling over ten pounds.
