Falstaff Wineguide Austria/South Tyrol 2021/22

Göttweig Abbey has been 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 producers. The magnificent Benedictine monastery is located opposite the wine town of Krems, on the south bank of the Danube, at the very top of the Göttweiger Berg. The complex, built according to plans by the famous architect Johann Lukas von Hildebrandt, is famous far beyond the borders of Austria. Also imperial is the imposing Baroque Imperial Staircase with its magnificent ceiling fresco by Paul Troger, which is used in miniature for the capsule of every bottle of this revived winery. The Benedictines settled here as early as 1083, and as early as the 16th century the abbey's wines were renowned for their quality, making them popular with the Austrian nobility as well as the imperial troops.

Today, a fresh wind blows through the thick walls in the person of Fritz Miesbauer. 26 hectares of best vineyards on the Göttweiger Berg belong to the winery. Miesbauer is particularly proud of the "first growth sites" 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 experts, and Falstaff also named him "Falstaff Winemaker of the Year" in 2020.
