Late red Gebeshuber

The Johannes and Johanna Gebeshuber family winery is located in the municipality Gumpoldskirchen in the Lower Austrian wine region Thermenregion, For centuries the autochthonous variety Zierfandler in Gumpoldskirchen has been called late red, whereby the name is derived from the reddish color of its berries when fully ripe. The Gebeshuber family winery has the same name for this reason because it specializes in the two varieties Zierfandler and Rotgipfler. The company location is the traditional Lueger cellar, which the Mayor of Vienna, Dr. Karl Lueger (1844-1910) built in 1905. At that time it served as a branch of the Vienna City Hall cellar and was later the center of the former winegrowers' cooperative Gumpoldskirchen - the oldest in Austria. Today the building also houses a winegrowing museum, the large wooden barrel cellar is used for presentations related to wine and tastings.

The own vineyards cover 20 hectares of vineyards. Grapes are purchased from a further 20 hectares of vineyards according to strict quality criteria. The vineyards are cultivated according to special quality standards in a natural way. The harvest is carried out exclusively by hand. Appropriate selection means that only healthy, ripe grapes are processed. The white wines are made from the grape varieties Zierfandler and Rotgipfler and the red wines from the Burgundy varieties St. Laurent and Pinot Noir. Both are vinified in the three categories Classic, Reserve and Large Reserve. The wines are fermented temperature controlled in steel tanks or in large and small wooden barrels. The winery is a member of the winegrowers' association Therme Winzer,
