Markus Huber and Lenz Moser are united in their goal to bring Gruener Veltliner to the world as Austria's preeminent and ambassador grape variety. Both partners have learned that you have to fight for the region, for the category, in addition to working for your own company. They know that it always takes a higher cause to be successful.
The goal of Markus and Lenz is now to create a new Gruener Veltliner to be brought to the entire wine-loving world (including outside the German-speaking world ;-). Their clear goal is to help and develop this grape into a global ambassador for top Austrian winemaking.
Lenz & Markus have lived and breathed Gruener their entire lives. When they decided to start this exciting new project (NEW CHAPTER), they set out on a mission to improve this Austrian treasure to make it even more delicate for the international market and make this naturally top grape just another Burgundy. to give style upbringing, so a longer maturation, partly in wood, but while retaining the naturally spicy tones and good acidity.
The family estate of Markus Huber, 10th generation, is located in Traisental, an hour's drive west of Vienna, in the heart of the Grüner region. The estate is 100% organic, 60 hectares in size and 70% planted with Grüner Veltliner. Markus is THE specialist and awarded best winemaker of the year in Austria. The wine is a blend of Markus' best vineyards of the Traisental region, and the idea is to create a white wine that can compete with the best wines in the world, in a style that is powerful but not opulent and with a focus on elegance.
