Krug Gustav

The winery is located in the wine-growing community Gumpoldskirchen in the Lower Austrian wine-growing region Thermenregion, It is now run by Gustav Krug in the 17th generation of the family. Since 1970, the wine tavern "Altes Zechhaus" is operated. The house first mentioned in 1549 has been owned by the family since 1905. It once served to store the wine. A guest house is connected. In 1998, the wine cellar was outsourced and a modern, functional winery farm built in the middle of the vineyards. The vineyards cover 34 hectares of vineyards (12 of which are owned) in the vineyards Doctnerin. Eichkogel, Hausberg, Katzbühel, Rasslerin and Sonnberg. They are 60% with the white varieties Welschriesling, Chardonnay, Rotgipfler, Zierfandler, Grüner Veltliner, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris, and planted to 40% with the red varieties Merlot, Zweigelt, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Particular attention is paid to the care of the vineyards. By appropriate selection, only healthy and mature grape material is processed. The red wines mature for at least a year in small or large oak barrels before they are marketed. The white wines are fermented at 18 to 20 Celsius and usually expanded in steel tanks or large wooden barrels. Premium wines are the red wines "CLASSIC" (Zweigelt, Merlot), "The Temptation" with an erotic label (Zweigelt, Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir) and the only top-aged "PRIVATE" (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) and the white wine "Die white temptation "(Pinot Gris). In weather-appropriate years also noble sweet Trockenbeerenauslesen are produced. Every year around 250,000 bottles of wine are produced. There will also be frizzante, brandies and vinegar generated.
