Ried Kogelberg

The red schist at the upper part of Kogelberg is 500 million years old and contains a high iron content, oxides, and hydroxides. In their quest for nutrients, the vine roots delve deep into the subsoil, absorbing mineral trace elements that they pass on to the grapes.

The meager soil imparts excellent minerality to the wines and gives them their typically taut, salty character. The wines of Ried Kogelberg are further distinguished by their high vitality and possess immense aging potential.

Ried Oberburgstall

The shell limestone soils of Flamberg are approximately 17 million years old and form the basis for this special vineyard in the northern part of South Styria. Many areas in these vineyards are chalky and interspersed with shells and corals from the ancient Pannonian Sea. While the primordial sea has long since receded, it has left us with substantial limestone formations that we highly value for winemaking today.

Here, you’ll find our core vineyards and the origin of our winemaking heritage. In 1926, our ancestors acquired this ancestral vineyard on Flamberg and began cultivating grapes. Ried Oberburgstall is a very steep, southwest-facing bowl-shaped vineyard with distinct microclimatic features. Due to the extreme slope, its management is very demanding and can only be handled through precise manual labor. However, the high-quality grapes we harvest here every year make every drop of sweat worthwhile.

Our Burgundy varieties feel particularly at home on Ried Oberburgstall because it reminds them of their homeland, Burgundy. The wines are known for their silkiness and precision, boasting immense depth and a significant aging potential.
