Late Benjamin

The estate is located in the commune of Großkrut in the northeast of the Lower Austrian wine-growing region Weinviertel, It was developed by Dr. Monika and Dr. Heribert Späth founded. After training at HBLA Klosterneuburg , the company has been run by their son Benjamin Späth since summer 2005. The vineyards cover ten hectares of vineyards in the Lissen, Tiefenthal, Wartberg and Wiesbergen vineyards. They are 70% planted with the white varieties Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Welschriesling, and 30% with the red varieties Zweigelt, Blauburgunder, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and St. Laurent. Environmentally friendly management is carried out according to the guidelines of KIP (Controlled Integrated Production). The quality standard is based on strict yield restrictions, hand picking and gentle grape processing according to the principle of slope use from top to bottom. Depending on the desired style, the wines are aged in steel tanks, large wooden barrels or barriques and only bottled at the optimal time. The premium wines include several Weinviertel DAC (Grüner Veltliner), mixed set of old vineyards, Zweigelt Classic and the red wine cuvée "bin 341" (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir). If the weather is suitable, ice wines are also pressed. Bottle-fermented sparkling wines are also produced.
