Weingut Stift Klosterneuburg

Top vineyard sites in four different wine villages, one of the most fascinating cellars in Austria, an unbroken wine growing tradition for nearly 900 years and quality without compromise are the attributes of the Stift Klosterneuburg winery. Since its foundation in the year 1114 Stift Klosterneuburg has produced wine making it the oldest winery in Austria. With a total vineyard area of 108 hectares, it also counts among the largest and most famous wineries in the country. Centuries of experience, thoughtful vineyard cultivation in harmony with nature, and openness for new ideas make it possible to create truly great wines each year. Stift Klosterneuburg is dedicated to producing authentic wines of character, wines with a sense of place. Purposeful specialization in autochthon grape varieties, conscientious handling of fruit and gentle vinification serve this goal. Highest international accolades for our wines deliver confirmation of quality efforts each year. Stift Klosterneuburg is also a leader in sustainability and environmental protection and was the first carbon neutral winery in Austria.

The vineyards of Stift Klosterneuburg are part of a vital ecological system and home to numerous species of flora and fauna. Sowing a diversity of plants between vine rows attracts an abundance of beneficial animals and insects. The soil, mother of all plants, is given great attention in our vineyards. Fertilization with our own compost gives back to the earth what has been given us in the form of grapes. Living soil with intact micro-organisms is important to us. Consciencious and harmonious work with nature is the motivation for our preference for manual rather than mechanical vineyard cultivation. Each vine can be given individual attention by placing shoots and plucking leaves to ensure optimal sun exposure and ripening of highly flavourful grapes with intense expression.

Prolonged, temperature-controlled white wine vinification highlights typical varietal aromas and fresh, crisp fruit. Red wines are fermented warmer to enhance optimal extraction of colour and tannin. Minimal intervention is practiced after fermentation to preserve varietal, vintage, and single vineyard character of the wines. Maturation and storage take place in the four story vaulted cellar directly under the monastery.
