Austria - Leo Alzinger - Wein und Genuss

Austria: You're exploring Austrian wines - enjoy!

Leo Alzinger is based in Unterloiben and is without doubt one of the true Wachau superstars.

This fine estate makes superlative single vineyard wines from premium mountain sites including Loibenberg, Steinertal, Hollerin and Liebenberg, with soil types including sandy loam and eroded primary rock.

The estate totals about 8 hectares and production is very small at just 5000 cases per year. Grape varieties are 55% Grüner Veltliner, 40% Riesling - there used to be Chardonnay but it is gone, we have some of the last worldwide and it is truly magical.

There are in fact two Leo Alzingers, Father and son, with Leo Junior having joined his Father in 2000 is now in charge. The third generation has a few years to go yet...

Whatever the generation, Leo Alzinger's wines are simply awesome. They are right up there with the very best the Wachau has to offer and deserve every bit of attention they get. The superstar status is well deserved, yet this remains a small family business embodying individuality and an unceasing quest for quality.

A mature Alzinger wine is a joy to imbibe, if somewhat hard to come by. Alzinger's wines are bottled quite late by Wachau standards, often in June or July, while the Wachau rules permit earlier release of Smaragd wines to the market on 1 May.

Austria has a winegrowing heritage stretching back over three millennia and produces some of the best wines in the world, of unparalleled quality, from grape varieties not grown elsewhere.

Today you finally find a couple Austrian wines in most shops, and in restaurants. A good start, but not enough, as Austria has so much more to offer!

We offer wines from all the regions and have picked from the best growers in each winegrowing regions. All of these - except Stift Klosterneuburg - are family run - And Stift Klosterneuburg is in a class of its own. All offer wines of individuality, character, and outstanding quality

We wouldn't be the champions of Austrian Wines in the UK if we didn't cover all of its diverse regions. They are all here from the white wines of Wachau, Kamptal, Kremstal, Wagram and Weinviertel, through the magic of Vienna and the Viennese hills in Carnuntum and Thermenregion, all the way to Burgenland and Styria in the south. Enjoy!
