In summer 2005 my brother Dietmar and I were extremely
lucky to be able to buy an outstanding vineyard within the Strasser
Wechselberg first growth. It is terraced and has been planted with
Neuburger, Riesling and Grüner Veltliner grape varieties since
1958. What further impressed us was the fact that there is just
one vine per square metre. This means, unfortunately, that we can’t
use any machines and have to do all the work manually. But it also
creates a unique microclimate within the vineyard. Our very first
‘von den Terrassen 1958' vintage boasts this uniqueness in
many different ways.
In spring 2006 we decided to change all the supports and wiring
– an important measure to secure the existence of the vineyard
in general, and be able to further guarantee exceptional wines in
the future. It gives us great pleasure to work in this vineyard!
