Austria, Wachau aus

Weingut Rudi Pichler is one of the premier estates in the Wachau and has been a fixture in Wösendorf since 1731.  The Pichler family dedicates themselves to viticulture, cultivating fifteen hectares of vineyard. Their vineyards are divided between 65% Grüner Veltliner and 30% Riesling, with the remaining 5% shared by Weissburgunder and Roter Veltliner – all vinified according to the three quality categories of the Vinea Wachau: Steinfeder, Federspiel and Smaragd. The estates vineyards consist of 37-acres spread between Wösendorf, Joching, Weißenkirchen, and Mautern. Rudi also maintains a small vineyard of Roter Veltliner across the river in Mautern. 

Rudi Pichler crafts world-class, terroir driven and remarkably precise wines from his low yielding vineyards, which are some of the premier sites in the Wachau for growing Riesling and Grüner Veltliner. He thrives to acheive the vineyard and varietal expression to be as clear as possible, meticulously removing botrytis and harvesting all by hand. His efforts certainly pay off, as his wines are some of the finest the region has to offer.
