On the variety and origins of this wine: Chardonnay, a classic Burgundian variety, is one of the finest and best white wine varieties in the world. Kahlenbergerdorf‘s mild microclimate and chalky soil provide ideal ripening conditions for the yellow-to-amber coloured grapes and give rise to elegant and versatile wines.

History

Wine Estate of Klosterneuburg Monastery: Since its foundation in 1114 Klosterneuburg monastery has been growing wine and therefore is the oldest wine estate of Austria. With 108 Hectares of vineyards it is one of the country‘s largest and most renowned estates.

Philosophy

The wines bearing the Stift Klosterneuburg crest are the mainstay of our range of wines. Our Stiftsweine (Monastery wines) are youthful, fruity and charac-teristic of their varieties. They elegantly reflect the typicity of the relevant wine-growing region. The grapes used to make them come from various vineyards, but always from one wine-growing location. The Stiftswein collection represents Austrian winemaking tradition in its most enjoyably drinkable form.
