Falstaff Wineguide Austria/South Tyrol 2021/22

The Wieders are wine farmers in the truest sense of the word. They were farmers for many generations but since the 1980s they have been focusing on wine. Thus fields were exchanged for vineyards, cattle sheds for bottling rooms, pigsties for barrel cellars and a hay loft for a tasting room. In the meantime, the wines have established themselves at the top of the Austrian red wine league. Georg Wieder has been passionately producing the wines typical of the region since his youth supported by his sister Burgi. Together with company founder and mother, Juliana Wieder, they recognised the potential of the individualistic vineyards early on. Knowing that characterful wine is not made in the cellar but rather in the vineyard, they secured the best sites in the region: Spiegelberg, Bodigraben, Sonnensteig, Hochberg, Pollesgraben, Kronberg, Hussy, Kohlenberg, Hochäcker and Gfanger.

About 42 hectares of vineyards are cultivated, most of which are 50 years old and older. Of course, Blaufränkisch is the focal point of the winery and is vinified in different styles depending on the location and age of the vines. But other vines are also grown: Welschriesling and Chardonnay as well as Zweigelt, St. Laurent, Merlot, Syrah, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon are an exciting challenge. The international red wine varieties are only bottled as single varietals in top vintages, otherwise they round off the "Georg", "Morandus" and "Sempre" cuvées. The Wieders not only attach great importance to quality, but also put a lot of heart into the production. The preservation of tradition and nature do not exclude the receptiveness for new things. This is how Georg always manages to get the best out of the grapes.
