The Traditonsweingüter Wien have been dedicated to assessing the quality of their vineyard crus for over ten years now. They have meticulously selected a total of 12 single vineyards to be awarded Erste Lage status from the 2017 vintage on.
These Erste Lage vineyards are particularly unique, both in terms of their geology in combination with the microclimate, as well as in terms of their historical significance and the distinctive nature of their wine styles.
The six most outstanding Viennese vineyards shall now be tasted across three vintages to demonstrate their consistency and potential. Sascha Speicher, editor-in-chief at Meininger Verlag, will be moderating together with the winegrowers to illustrate the inimitability of each vineyard and explore the possibility of a Grosse Lage classification.
