Falstaff Wineguide Austria 2022/23

The Dockner family from Höbenbach in southern Kremstal are very pleased with their latest vintage. In recent years, they have enjoyed numerous successes. In the meantime, wines from a good 80 hectares of their own land and 70 hectares of contracted land are farmed. Grüner Veltliner is the farm's main variety, but the Dockners also produce outstanding Riesling wines. The wines from these two varieties are divided into regional wines, local wines, and single-vineyard site wines. The fact that father Sepp, who is responsible for vineyards and marketing, and his son Josef, cellar master of the house, can also offer excellent red wines is not entirely new - and that in a region where reds are not necessarily among the mainstream wines. Especially with the Cuveé "Sacra", the two have been able to show repeatedly that top red wines are also possible in the Kremstal.

An additional project is the production of their own traditional method of sparkling wine. For this purpose, several old cellars in the Kellergasse at Frauengrund in Krems were restored and converted into the new sparkling wine facility, which was opened in 2014. Sparkling wines from all three quality levels of the Austrian sparkling wine pyramid are offered: Classic, Reserve and Great Reserve. In 2017, the new JOE-Keller was opened in Höbenbach, a new production facility that is one of the most modern cellars in Austria. Guided tours for 20 or more people are available by appointment.
