Weingut Stift Göttweig is known as one of the oldest wineries in Austria. As a Benedictine abbey, Stift Göttweig was founded in the year 1083 by Altmann van Passau (also known as Sint Altmann). Since that time, the abbey has always played an important role in the development of wine production in the Wachau Valley. Stift Göttweig is located between the rolling countryside on the south bank of the Danube opposite the city of Krems at 449 meters above sea level. Because of this location and the abbey, the winery is also called the Austrian Montecassino. The Benedictines were responsible for the administration and management until 1988, after which the property was rented out until 2005. Since 2006, winegrower Fritz Miesbauer and his team have been reliving history at the Stift Göttweig estate.

The Stift Göttweig Pinot Noir Göttweiger Berg has benefited from the special microclimate in which the grapes grow for this wine made from 100% pinot noir. The atmospheric currents that come from the Dunkelsteiner forest and the warmer Pannonian air provide this microclimate. The combination of these air currents and the natural humidity in the Danube region create balanced conditions that allow the grapes to grow optimally. In addition to the microclimate, the soil composition is also very varied. The composition of chalky clay, gravel, loess and sand in combination with the microclimate ensures that the pinot noir grapes can develop optimally.

Once it is time to harvest at the end of September, the grapes undergo a selection in the wine cellar followed by alcoholic fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Once the fermentation has ended, the wine is allowed to mature for another 13 months in oak barrels to finally develop into an elegant ruby red wine. In the nose aromas of cherries, red berries, vanilla and hint of cinnamon. Juicy and balanced in the mouth with notes of cherry and red berries followed by a beautiful elegant finish.
