Falstaff Wineguide Austria/South Tyrol 2021/22

Like hardly any other winery in the Kremstal region of Niederösterreich, the Forstreiter winery succeeds in combining tradition and innovative spirit. With the Tabor, the winery owns the oldest vineyard in Austria with unaltered Grüner Veltliner vines and with its wine cellar, which has grown organically for decades, one of the most modern wine production sites in the region. Located in Hollenburg, the southeasternmost district of the white-wine capital of Krems, the winery has been family-owned since 1868 and, although it has grown from 28 to 54 hectares over the past few decades, is still run as a family business in close connection with nature by the current winemaker Meinhard Forstreiter.

The main variety is Grüner Veltliner, but Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Gelber Muskateller as well as red wines from Zweigelt and St. Laurent are also pressed, which are successfully exported to 17 different countries. "We are proud to carry the 'Sustainably Produced Wine from Austria' certificate since 2019 and are pleased to be able to make an ecological, economic and social contribution." The wines are appreciated by private customers and gastronomy alike, and great value is placed on personal contact with customers here.
