Falstaff Wineguide Austria/South Tyrol 2021/22

Salomon Undhof is an integral part of Austrian wine history and one of the oldest private wineries in the Austria. White wines have been produced here for over 230 years from some of the best sites along the Danube, including such famous vineyards as "Ried Steiner Kögl", "Ried Pfaffenberg", "Ried Wachtberg" and "Ried Lindberg".

The fame of the winery was established in the early 1930s, with the very first wine bottling facility in Austria. Through Bertold Salomon, the winery today stands above all for its renowned and excellent dry Rieslings and Grüner Veltliners, long-lived, elegant white wines. More than half of the 30 hectares of vineyards are planted with Riesling, the rest with Grüner Veltliner and a small part with Gelber Traminer. Salomon Undhof's formerly church-owned vineyard terraces are located in the westernmost part of the Krems Valley, where the soils consist mainly of primary rock. This is where Stein on the Danube, the Kremstal wine-growing region and the Wachau World Heritage site all merge together. Controlled integrated vineyard management and the renunciation of herbicides keep these vineyards in a healthy balance. These are now being cultivated by the ninth generation of siblings, Bert and Fanny Marie. After fifteen years with two wine harvests each (in Austria and Australia), the parents Bertold and Gertrud have recently passed on the responsibility to the next generation, who now concentrate on the high-class red wines of their Australian "Salomon Estate" in Finniss River and the joint venture "Salomon & Andrew" in New Zealand.
