We are pioneers of the Austrian organic wine farming movement. Our roots lie in the Wagram wine region, where the younger generation has since taken over the reins. We like Grüner Veltliner and Riesling. But we also like rare grape varieties, such as Frühroter Veltliner, and we love cool, refreshing red wines. What we don’t like is “Barbie wines” and greenhouse tomatoes. Our close relationship with nature allows us to interfere as little as possible in the cellar. All that we need is a lot of know-how, gut-feel, patience and love for wine. Hans and Paula Diwald grew up in the 1960s, both on a farm. In 1972, they took over the business and restructured it. Since 1976, they have become true pioneers by endeavouring something unthinkable: converting to organic farming practices. Back then there was no official certification yet, only a handful of kindred spirits. Paula and Hans used to be on the receiving end of condescending smiles, but today they are considered among the pioneers of a whole movement. We currently farm 20 ha of vines on our farm and export our wine to 18 countries, on 3 continents. In 2006, Martin Diwald joined the estate. After studying at the Institute of Viticulture and Pomology in Klosterneuburg and completing numerous internships, he was pushed straight into the deep end. He took great joy in experimenting and has never lost that enthusiasm. For example, his experiments with spontaneous fermentation were so successful that already in his second year all the wines were fermented in this way.
Taste: Pure, unadulterated loess. Ripe, spicy and creamy yet light on its feet – everything that is so typical of Grüner Veltliner and loess. A charming, inviting wine which will marry well with many different dishes. It’s great fun in its youth but also has good cellaring potential.

Vinification: The grapes are hand-harvested beginning October and allowed to ferment spontaneously. The selected vineyards with their loess soils make it possible to create a spicy, lively and thoroughly full-bodied wine which reflects its origins.
