E&m Berger Winery

Weingut & Gastehaus Berger Gedersdorf / Kremstal / Austria

With Erich Berger's oversight, the winery has implemented methods to produce wines that focus on varietal character and terroir. The white wines grow on steep loess terraces which characterize the landscape of the eastern part of the Kremstal. These terraces store heat during the day and reflect it onto the vines at night producing wines with unique fruity, fresh and bright flavors. The red wines are grown at the top of the hills where more humus-rich soils dominate and give the wines length, body, spice and lush fruit. Vineyards are maintained according to the latest organic guidelines. In the winery, efforts are made to preserve the fruit character by using cultured yeast in combinations with slow fermentations that are temperature controlled. The white wines are then aged exclusively in stainless steel, while the red wines are matured in traditional oak vats.

"In my fantasy I’ve been asked to present one wine with which to affirm the existence of GrüVe. I have my choice of many dozens of mighty and profound examples, whereby I can demonstrate that GV can also be “great.” But that’s almost too easy. To affirm that GV belongs among the finest grapes from
