Falstaff Wineguide Austria 2022/23

Salomon Undhof is a distinguished icon of Austrian wine history and one of the oldest private wineries in the country. White wines have been produced here for 230 years from some of the best Grand Cru 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 one of the first wine bottling and filling facilities in Austria. Through Bertold Salomon, the winery today stands above all for excellent dry Rieslings and Grüner Veltliners - long-lived, elegant wines for which the house is renowned. More than half of the 25 hectares of vineyards are planted with Riesling, the rest with Grüner Veltliner, and a small part with Gelber Traminer. The former church vineyard terraces of Salomon Undhof are located in the westernmost part of the Kremstal valley, where the soils consist mainly of primary rock. In Stein an der Donau, the Kremstal wine-growing region and the Wachau World Heritage Site coincide to form this unique wine-growing area. The name of the old wine town Stein has its origins from the predominance of primary rock soils on the stone terraces. Controlled integrated vineyard management and the renunciation of herbicides keep these vineyards in healthy balance. These are now being cultivated by the ninth generation of siblings, Bert and Fanny Marie. After 25 years with two wine harvests each (in Austria and Australia), the parents Bertold and Gertrud are passing on the responsibility to the next generation and are now concentrating on the high-quality red wines of their Australian "Salomon Estate" in Finniss River and the on their joint venture "Salomon & Andrew" in New Zealand.
