Domäne Wachau is, as the name suggests, deeply rooted in the Wachau region. Close to 440 hectares of vineyards are cultivated by the members of this quality-oriented cooperative, which accounts for 30 percent of the entire Wachau vineyard area. Domäne Wachau’s vineyards are found on steep terraces reinforced by old, dry-stone walls and are part of a World Cultural Heritage. Famous names like ‘Achleiten’, ‘Kollmitz’, ‘Loibenberg’ and ‘Tausend-Eimer-Berg’ are found on the Domäne Wachau’s vineyard map, making it the only winery in Wachau with wines from all of the most prestigious sites in the region.
Vintage 2019 is considered the vintage of the century in Austria. These Smaragd gems vinified after the ideal year with optimum weather conditions showcase immense inner tension, depth, and elegance, says Heinz Frischengruber, the oenologist of Domäne Wachau.
