Weingarten Gumpoldskirchen



The monastery’s vineyards here are situated in the heart of the world famous white wine capital of the Thermenregion. Zierfandler (Spätrot) and Rotgipfler are two classic autochthon varieties that exhibit true greatness only in this region. The explanation for this lies in the unique terroir. The Anninger and Eichkogel mountains protect the vines from harsh weather and allow the sun to pamper the southeast-facing slopes of calcareous cambisol soils. These are the ideal preconditions for these rare indigenous varieties.
