Making good wine and sparkling wine is a way of life and a fascinating task. As an old wine-grower’s family, our ancestors taught us that the wine simply gets better if you take care of every single vine by hand and with emotion.
– Weingut Steininger
With historical cellars dating back to the 9th Century, and a vineyard next door to the benchmark Willi Bründlmayer in the premier Grüner Veltliner AOC of Kamptal, Steiniger are a true family business with 4 generations of winemakers and viticulturists still actively involved. With very little Steininger making its way outside of Austria, it took a personal visit to procure this wine. The best Austrian Grüners are complex, crisp and harmonious, have verve and liveliness, with a signature white pepper note, snappy citrus edge, deliciousness and a hint of minerality. The best Grüners have a fruit-filled long dry finish and amazing food pairing abilities. Steininger is Grüner royalty, and makes wines with intensity, aristocratic elegance and beautiful length.
