Wimmer-Czerny

The estate is located in the village of Fels am Wagram in the wine-growing region Wagram, The long tradition in viticulture is witnessed by a wooden tree press from 1848. Wimmer-Czerny is the name of the farm, which refers to the last four generations of winegrower families. The company is since 1993 by Ing. Johann Czerny jr. and his wife Astrid. From 1985, the vineyards were converted to high foliage walls and planted the right varieties in the appropriate locations. The vineyards cover 15 hectares of vineyards in the vineyards Felser Berg, Fumberg, Mitterweg, slices and Weelfel. They are planted with the white varieties Grüner Veltliner (65%), Roter Veltliner (15%), Riesling, Pinot Blanc and Traminer, and the red varieties Zweigelt and Blauburgunder. The vineyards are made according to the methods of biodynamic viticulture (approved Demeterhof) farmed. Practiced methods are greening (up to ten different plants are sown annually), organic fertilization (with compost), plant strengthening by biodynamic preparations and plant teas, as well as abandonment insecticides and herbicides, By observing certain moon positions and planetary constellations for, for example, tillage, pruning and vinification are natural rhythms for enhancing positive effects are used.

For the fermentation of the musts, specially obtained natural yeasts are used instead of pure-bred yeasts. For the production of grapes are initially used, and later also musts of certain locations. The white wines are stored after slow fermentation and repeated sedimentation filtration, as well as demand-related acid degradation long on the lees, Only when filling a filtration. The bottling takes place as late as possible, the reserve, barrique and predicate wines are usually oversaturated. In the case of red wines, malolactic fermentation takes place in large acacia barrels after at least three weeks of mash fermentation. The Zweigelt is bottled after 18 months and the reserve wine after 20 months over a coarse filter. Every year around 80,000 bottles of wine are produced. Distillates are also produced. Livestock is also used for high quality compost, which is why seasonal animal products are also marketed. The winery is a member of the organic association DEMETER,
