Heinrich Weixelbaum produces superb results from some of Strass's best grapes. He is the winemaker of Weixelbaum Winery and is constantly looking for consistently excellent wines. His life is his family and winery and his guiding principle is: "We all have an interest in the progress of the vintage and have two simple aims...to make wines we love to drink ourselves, and to see others enjoying them."
Wine region: Kamptal, Austria. Its name originates from the Kamp River. In the middle of the Kamptal is Austria's largest wine town named Langenlois, next to the well-known wine village Strass is located. A wine growing highlight in the area is the Zöbinger Heiligenstein and the Strasser Gaisberg. Both mountains are now the best sites for Riesling and Grüner Veltliner. Plentiful clay, loess and primary rock soils help create a distinctive Grüner Veltliner. Here its taste is peppery and it has an excellent ageing potential. The pronounced acidity, a characteristic of the Grüner Veltliner as well as the Riesling, adds to this potential.
