Höfinger Egmont

The estate is located in the commune of Gobelsburg (Langenlois) in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region Kamptal, The history of the traditional family business dates back to 1590, when the family coat of arms was created. In 1985 the estate was taken over by Elisbeth and Egmont Höfinger. In addition to their training, the two daughters Christine and Johanna already contribute their knowledge and skills. Connected to the cozy restaurant "Rebstockgrill", which was opened in 1983. The vineyards cover around 22 hectares of vineyards in the vineyards Haide, Hofstatt, Hussen, Steinsätz and Thal (Gobelsburg), Heiligenstein and Kogelberg (Zöbing), and Sachsenberg (Hadersdorf). They are planted with the white varieties Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Pinot Blanc and Chardonnay, as well as with the red varieties Blauer Zweigelt, St. Laurent, Pinot Noir and Merlot.

Viticulture close to nature is practiced. When producing grapes, great importance is attached to quality-enhancing short pruning, careful foliage work, thin out of excessive grape curtain as well as the choice of the optimal time to harvest. The result is fruity and expressive wines. The premium wines include Grüner Veltliner "Frisch und Fruchtig", Gobelsburger Steininsatz, Zöbinger Kogelberg and Gobelsburger Alte Hussen (barrel aging), the two Rieslings "E" Zöbinger Heiligenstein and Kamptaler Weinberge, Pinot Blanc "Classic" and barrique aging, and the red wines Blauer Zweigelt , Cuvée Pinot Noir & Merlot and the Cuvée Egmont made from Blauer Zweigelt, St. Laurent and Pinot Noir, aged for 12 months in barriques. In suitable years, berry selection, dry berry selection and ice wines are also pressed. Grape juices (Veltliner, Zweigelt) and brandies (wine, pomace) are also produced.
