Falstaff Wineguide Austria 2022/23

Göttweig Abbey has been cultivating and growing grapes for over 900 years. In 2006 Fritz Miesbauer took over the business and really brought the winery up to speed and into the top league of Austrian wine producers. The magnificent Benedictine Abbey is located opposite the wine town of Krems, on the south bank of the Danube, at the very top of the Göttweiger Berg (hill). The complex, built according to plans by the famous architect Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt, is famous far beyond the borders of Austria. Furthermore, the imposing baroque "Kaiserstiege" (imperial staircase) features a magnificent ceiling fresco by Paul Troger, a miniature version of which is used for the capsule of every bottle of this revived winery. The Benedictines settled here as early as 1083, and in the 16th century, the abbey's wines were renowned for their quality, making them popular with the Austrian aristocracy as well as the imperial troops.

Today, a fresh wind blows through the ancient walls in the person of Fritz Miesbauer. Twenty-six hectares of the best vineyards on the Göttweiger Berg belong to the winery. Miesbauer is particularly proud of the "Erste Laden" Gottschelle, Silberbichl and Pfaffenberg. The winery is a member of the "Traditionsweingüter Österreich", owning several vineyard sites that are over 1,000 years old. Miesbauer's uncompromising striving for quality is regularly honoured by the world of wine experts and Falstaff also named him "Falstaff Winemaker of the Year" in 2020.
