This Grüner Veltliner comes from an east-oriented vineyard in the Kremstal in Niederösterreich, Austria's most important wine region. The Kremstal area is located on both sides of the Danube, surrounding the town of Krems. The vineyard has a lean soil consisting of loess developed from crystalline granulite. Granulite is metamorphic - or converted - rock that is light and sometimes appears violet - streaked from the dark mica (biotite). The grapes for this wine were harvested manually in mid-November and placed in small crates. After pressing the entire bunches and natural pre-filtration, this wine has spent no less than 6.5 years on the coarse lie in a large barrel before being bottled.
The producer of this wine is winery Geyerhof whose vineyards are located on the south side of the Danube below the famous monastery Göttweig. Wine is the focus of everyday life at Geyerhof. Joy and respect for life determine the actions and method. The winery was first mentioned in the municipal archives in the 12th century and has been owned by the family since the 16th century. Ilse and Josef Maier have been passionately cultivating 23 hectares of vineyards here since 1988 in accordance with organic regulations. Since 2015, Maria & Josef, the next generations, have joined the family business. Isse Maier and her son make organic wines at Geyerhof in the Kremstal that are juicy and friendly.

Organic viticulture is the biggest challenge in Geyerhof's efforts to continuously improve quality. It is often like a tightrope walker without a net. It requires in-depth knowledge, enormous sensitivity and a willingness to take risks. Organic cultivation is more than just deprivation of chemicals. A prerequisite is the knowledge that the laws of nature are unchangeable. Recognizing these laws and living with them has been a matter of course for thousands of years. It is a constant balance between nature and civilization. In practice, this requires meticulous and demanding manual work. A small mistake, a small omission over the course of a wine year can have disastrous consequences. Vines can only thrive on healthy soils in the long term and only then can the terroir really express itself in the wines. The basis for exceptional wines is always the vineyard.
Geyerhof winery has been organically certified by Austria Bio Guarantee since 1988. The know-how gained in the past 25 years in organic wine growing has been achieved with great courage and patience and has been financially costly. However, the result of all efforts is impressive, and that is great wines of more than excellent quality.
