Winery Martinshof

Grüner Veltliner, Zweigelt and an inclination towards Burgundies - this represents our interest in wine.We haven't always been praised when we started growing Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc at the end of the 1980s. But what's the alternative to Grüner Veltliner and Zweigelt if you have a winery in the Weinviertel? The road to an Austrian Burgundy was still rocky.

madness

Hausberg Galgenberg Sonnberg

Great grandfather, Burgundy, Nitsch

Already our great grandfather started growing Pinot Blanc, but it was stubbed after his death, because the harvest wasn't big enough.

Ever since our focus changed towards "outstanding wines", Burgundy wines came back into the game.

In the late 1990s, Austrian Burgundy wine was seen as "uncool", so the motto was to persevere - to be stubborn.

In the meantime we have 13 hectares in the sites of St. Ulrich - Hausberg, Sonnberg und Galgenberg, in addition we have the vineyard of Hermann Nitsch - also somebody from the Weinviertel, who appreciates the distinctiveness of the region.

Our Philosophy

Individuality
and
Quality

Due to our selection of wines, we automatically have special clients - those who appreciate Burgundies - simply individualists.

It is a fact that our Burgundy wines are complicated and partly capricious. This is one of the reasons why Burgundies are frequently described as feminine wines. Some things contradict each other, but - when looked at through the heart - they do make sense. This signifies stability and hence quality.
