ORIGIN: Austria (Wagram)
TYPE/VARIETAL: Gruner Veltliner
PRODUCT: Groiss Gruner Veltliner
The winery Groiss is located in Lower Austria on the eastern border of the Wagram in the winegrowing area Wagram. On sandy and partially very thick loess soil the varieties typically for the region are cultivated. The 14 hectares of vineyards are strictly cultivated according to the guidelines of the Integrated Production. The natural cultivation is looking to be in consistence with the nature to harvest grapes of highest quality. The family business is managed by Herbert Groiss Jun., Karin and his parents Herbert and Luise Groiss. He is the second generation vintner of a vibrant and aspiring winery. Herbert Groiss Jun., graduate of HBLVA Klosterneuburg, is responsible for the vinification of the wines. His passion is the classic Grüner Veltliner - classic dry, fruity and spicy.
The Wagram is a terrain elevation originated by sand driftings alongside the Danube River thousands of years ago. With its seceding loess terraces facing south, it offers ideal conditions to the vines. The warm pannonic climate streams into the Danube area and provides for the ideal ripeness of grapes. At the same time, the nights at the Wagram are cool enough to enable the formation of a delicate fruit aroma, and maintain the typical, racy acidity of the white wines. Grüner Veltliner loves this pure loess soils. Weissburgunder and Pinot Gris favor the soils rich in lime, whereas Riesling grows best on sandy, meager soils.
