Erich Altenriederer’s family estate produces wine from 7.5 hectares of grapes and also a range of fresh fruit juices from a further 8 hectares of orchards, mainly for the local market. The estate is located at Wagram/Traismauer near Krems, a small village between the Danube and the Traisen (a tributary of the Danube) which gives the Traisental its name. This region enjoys a good local micro-climate.
In recent years, Erich has, together with his wife Sibylle and mother Angela, invested in a new modern cellar and has planted new vineyards which yield better and better quality wine as time passes. They have planted new varieties for this region such as Riesling and selected the best Grüner Veltliner clones available. Other varieties grown include Chardonnay, Zweigelt, Blauer Portugieser, Cabernet Sauvignon and Blauburger. Erich spends a lot of time on vineyard husbandry as he believes quality starts in the vineyard.
