About Weingut Familie Bauer

Located in the Grossriedenthal area of the Wagram region, Josef Bauer, alongside his wife Eva Maria, comprise the extraordinary winemakers of Weingut Familie Bauer. The Bauer family can trace their lineage back to 1796 when the farms in Grossriedenthal were used predominantly for animals, but since 1983 they have been focused on winemaking. Josef took over the estate in 2001, instituting major improvements in the vineyard and winery to improve quality, thus making them one of the best producers in the region. The estate cultivates approximately 20 hectares of vineyards using organic practices to improve every aspect of the environment, from cover crops to creating optimal conditions for predators to dissuade pests that could affect the vines. These practices, they believe, reflect the natural terroir found in their wines.

In their modern cellar, they craft crisp, clean wines from their 17 hectares of vines, including Grüner Veltliner and Roter Veltliner.  Other grapes include Spätburgunder, Zweigelt, Merlot, Blauburger, and Riesling, among others.
