Ernst Harald

The estate is located in the commune of Großwiesendorf 25 kilometers east of Krems in the Lower Austrian wine region Wagram, It is managed in the fifth generation of families. After graduating from the Krems Wine School, Harald Ernst took over the family business in 1991. The first big success came just two years later, when Riesling was named Austria's best wine as the country's winner. The vineyards cover 8.5 hectares of vineyards on loess soils. They are planted with the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Pinot Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc, as well as with the red wine varieties Zweigelt and St. Laurent. The management takes place according to the strict environmental regulations of the KIP (integrated controlled production). The nutrient requirements of the vine are largely due to the cultivation of legumes and achieved a lot of humus production in the vineyard. The harvest is carried out exclusively by hand. After careful grape processing, a controlled, chilled fermentation takes place. Premium wines include Grüner Veltliner in the Classic, Kabinett, Alte Rebe and Reserve, Riesling Hohenberg and Zweigelt variants.
