Onshore Cellars - ICONIC Producer
Domäne Wachau is a quality driven cooperative situated in the heart of the Wachau region of Austria. With close to 440 hectares of vineyards, nearly 30% of the entire Wachau vineyard area, it is one of the largest wineries in the country. Producing solely premium wines, Domäne Wachau is also widely perceived to be one of the top white wine producers in Austria, only making wines in the categories Steinfeder, Federspiel and Smaragd.
The vineyards are found on steep terraces reinforced by old dry stone walls and are a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to the fact cultivation here can be traced back to the Celtic times. One of the most stunning wine producing regions in the world, without the efforts of the team at Domäne Wachau it is likely that many of these would have been abandoned due to the challenging nature of viticulture in this dramatic landscape.
Domäne Wachau is the only winery in the Wachau with wines from all of the most prestigious vineyard sites in the region, with famous names like Achleiten, Kollmitz and Loibenberg found on their vineyard map. Headed up by Roman Horvath MW, with oenologist Heinz Frischengruber, the winery is a model for sustainable winemakers around the world.
