Falstaff Wineguide Austria 2022/23

When stones and boulders from the Traisen encounter washed-out limestone, it takes a few millennia for conglomerate to form - creating rather magnificent Veltliners. Tom Dockner's vines grow on these ancient, ice-age soils, on which quite a few valuable building blocks, i.e. sediments, have accumulated. These in turn give his Grüner Veltliners from the Traisental their inimitable quality: mineral, multilayered, expressive and yet not too overpowering. "Conglomerate" is the name of this unique combination of many thousands of years of scree, gravel, lime, wind, and other climatic factors. These unique vineyards are called Theyerner Berg, Pletzengraben and Hochschopf. Since 2019, the latter two vineyards have been classified as "Erste Lagen 1 ÖTW", and since then the winery has been a member of the "Österreichische Traditionsweingüter". Grüner Veltliner and Riesling are certainly the best-known varieties of the Traisental and also Tom Dockner's showpiece wines, but Traminer and Pinot Noir also never fail to impress. Sustainability and near-natural cultivation of the vineyards are very important to the Traisental winemaker. For Tom Dockner, cellar work means bringing the quality and character of the grapes from the vineyard into the bottle without compromise. Therefore, meticulous hygiene and gentle processing are a matter of course here. These unique wines are best tasted where they mature: in the light-filled and spacious tasting room located in the heart of the Traisental valley.

Here you have the opportunity to explore for yourself the unique character of the landscape, the people, the nature, and these unique wines.
