Forstreiter was named Top 100 Wineries of the Year by Wine & Spirits Magazine. The Forstreiter family has been making wine here since 1868, but it is the current owner and winemaker, Meinhard Forstreiter, who has brought the winery to a new level of quality and reputation, utilizing the most advanced modern technology and implementing sound, sustainable methods. Weingut Forstreiters 69-acre vineyard is situated in Krems-Hollenburg in the Kremstal, Niedersterreich, Austria, along the banks of the Danube River, across from the Wachau.
There has been wine production in this area since the Roman Empire. Most of the Forstreiter wine grows close to the Danube on south or east facing terraces on konglomerate, with different layers of loess, clay and sandy soil. This Hollenburger Konglomerat was formed during the Ice Age from compressed gravel from the banks of the Danube. The unique soil formations and microclimate of this area produce exceptional fruity, spicy and peppery wines with lots of minerals.
