I was knocked out by the consistent, high level of quality wines from Weingut Tegernseerhof. The Tegernseerhof vineyards are located on the best slopes of the Wachau region. The vineyards of Steinertal form a giant amphitheatre cut into the solid rock. The flavors explode on the palate, the wine is mouthcoating, suave and long.

The historical roots of Tegernseerhof go back over 1000 years. Holy Roman Emperor Henry II granted the Benedictine monastery of Tegernsee two oxgangs of land in Wachau. In 1176, Tegernseerhof was built and named after its owner.
Today, Tegernseerhof is owned by the Mittelbach family. The winery has been in their possession for five generations. The name has been preserved, like the ancient knowledge of viniculture, passed on from one generation to the next.
The Tegernseerhof vineyards are located on the best slopes of the Wachau region. They are characterized by steep terraces of primary rock, with optimal exposure to sun and wind.The result is an incredible wealth of different aromas, reflected in the different Smaragd wines of Tegernseerhof. Whether Grüner Veltliner or Riesling, each wine has a personality all of its own.
The vineyards of Steinertal form a giant amphitheatre cut into the solid rock. Facing South East and surrounded by massive rock formations, the vineyards offer a spectacular view themselves.
At night, a cold North wind sweeps across the Steinertal vineyards. The terraces appear like stony tiers, symmetrically grown out of the rock itself; they are covered with a soft layer of sand – ideal conditions for vines.A native of this environment, the Riesling Steinertal appears like a refined artist. It is characterized by a noble fragility and plays many different roles when consumed.At times tart and salty, at times reminiscent of peaches, each sip creates a new association. Drinking Riesling Steinertal is a cultural experience in several movements, composed from our own vines. Weingut Tegernseerhof
