Our family cultivates vines in this area in the third generation since 1936. But the wine tradition of our house “Krustetten no. 12″ can be traced in the archives of the Göttweig abbey. Today in our house are working grandparents, parents and children together under the same roof. Leopold is responsible for the cellar work, the processes that turn grapes into finished wines. His special attention is giving to his favourite grape Grüner Veltliner. The constant quest for quality of Leopold was the recipe for success over recent years as seven Müller wines were selected for the ‘Salon Österreichischer Wein’ (Salon of Autrian Wine – very distinct list of the best wines in Austria). Furthermore, two of their wines were awarded second place in a national listing featuring Grüner Veltliner and Riesling. Stefan is responsible for their carefully layed out vineyards in the best regions along the Krems valley. He is cultivating the 65 ha of vineyards with dedication and expertise. The climatic impact of the Danube and the hearty clay soil over warm gravel are creating the foundatation for the optimal conditions to cultivate the vines that bring forth such flavourful varity in the grapes. Not only is Stefan responsible for the vineyards but he is also running the own vine nursery and the family’s ‘Heurigen’ where he spoils his guests with regional specialities that are complemented by their award-winning wines.
