Stefan Zehetbauer, at the Foot of Leithaberg Hills

The Stefan Zehetbauer is present at the foot of Leithaberg hills on the Schutzen am Gebirge. The ancestors began winemaking in 1705, and the winery is currently in the tenth generation. Stefan Zehetbauer always wants to instill the qualities of the terroir in the wines. The high-end wines come from Steinberg, which is regarded as one of the top sites in the appellation. The family also made themselves a name in Austria, especially with their unique Cabernet Franc. The family sticks to the principle of carefully supporting the vines and relying on old but healthy vineyards. Natural green cover, composted pomace as a natural fertilizer, or no usage of herbicides are a few examples of their work approach.

Perfect Soil, Microclimate to Grow Stunning Grapes

The vineyards are all strongly influenced by the limestone called Leithakalk and mica-slate soils that define the appellation Leithaberg DAC. The microclimate, temperature, and rainfall are also perfect for the cultivation of vines. The workers handpick the best grapes and take it to the winery for further processing. The main grape varieties that grow here are Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer, Blaufränkisch, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. The best grapes are used to make their top-quality red and white wines. The interventions in the cellar are reduced to a minimum, and grapes are fermented spontaneously. The wines are matured for extended periods on the lees, and then re-serve wines are bottled without any fining. Producing precise and elegant wines with striking minerality and ageing potential is important for Stefan Zehetbauer.
