Austria - Weingut Kiss
There are three Weingut Kiss in the same town, which means we got lost on our first visit. But this visit turned into one of the best days of my 2016, and our visit this year one of the best in 2018, so it was worth the initial confusion.
The winery was started by Georg Kiss (pronounced "Kisch") in 1837 - a wine cellar of 20 square meters!
Today Rudolf and Verena are the sixth generation, cultivating 10 hectares, many of them reclaimed and made into vineyards by hard work, removing thousands of tons of stone out.
The result is fantastic wine made by the loveliest people - what could be better?
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!
