Austria - Weingut Brietenfelder
Crystalline gems from the Weinviertel.
Harald Breitenfelder comes from a traditional wine-and-farm family as is customary in the Weinviertel. Together with his wife he has focused the business completely on first class wine production. It is the typical size for an Austrian family winery, at around 18 hectares
He is part of a new wave of innovative winemakers who have been changing the reputation of the region. His approach is modern and ambitious and produces elegant and precise wines - several Grüner Veltliner of outstanding quality, elegant first class whites and stylish fruity reds.
The wines are serial award winners and after tasting the wines it is easy to understand why. Harald is one of our core winemakers for Weinviertel and we are very pleased and proud to be able to bring these wines to the UK.
They also have some lovely guest rooms if you are ever visiting the Weinviertel
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!
