Exquisite, Handcrafted, Organic Wines of Weingut Neumeister
Weingut Neumeister is located in Straden, present in the volcanic area of Styria in Austria’s southeastern part. The winery is known for its exquisite, handcrafted, organic wines of the highest quality that have received top national and international ratings. The winery showcases great architecture and boasts a great tasting room too. The Illyrian and pannonian climate results in warm days and cool nights and gives an optimum amount of rainfall throughout the year. These natural conditions make the region suitable for vine cultivation and allow for a long growing season and late harvest. Most of the work at the estate is done by hand, and since 2013 they are certified organic.
Vineyards on Countless Steep Slopes
Their vineyards are present on countless steep slopes and cover around 30 hectares of land.
These scattered vines require continuous ripening during harvest. The workers handpick the best grapes and bring them to the winery in small batches. The maceration of grapes takes place up to 48 hours, and the hilly terrain allows them to use gravitation in this process. Fermentation with wild yeasts makes the wine retain its natural fruity taste, great structure, and intense aroma. The typical grape types that grow in their vineyards are Sauvignon Blanc, Grauburgunder, Weißburgunder, Morillon, Chardonnay, Gelber Muskateller, Roter Traminer, Zweigelt, and Pinot Noir. These grapes are handpicked and use to make their exquisite red, white, sparkling, and dessert wines. Guests are always welcome to the winery and tasting room for wine tasting and guided tours.
