The Hager's winery consists of 13ha of vineyards in and around the small wine-growing village of Mollands in the Kamptal region of Austria. The strength of this family business is its soil diversity. Loess, clay and different kinds of primary rock (mica schist, gneiss, etc.) can be found in the northern part of the region. Since 2006, the winery has been working according to the biodynamic guidelines of the Demeter Association. Matthias' philosophy is that nature is a sophisticated system which is to be explored and it has it's own unique self-regulating power that can be used for viniculture.

The grapes are hand harvested from 50 year old vines, fermented with natural yeasts and left on the lees for over a year. The wine is unfined and unfiltered with only minimum SO² added at bottling.  Expect to find aromas of honeydew melon, yellow apple with a touch of mint on the nose. A truly special GV with the fantastic smokiness combined with a mild mineral tone and spiciness on the palate. Soft in texture with a wonderful aftertaste of honeysuckle. 

This Gruner will be a great match with food - try with smoked ham or fish. 

About the Winery

Matthias Hager

The Hager Matthias winery is located in the small village of Mollands in the Kamptal area of Lower Austria. Matthias took over the 12-hectare land and the family business at an early age. He aims to produce the best quality wine possible and to focus on being in balance with nature. The lands are cultivated according to biodynamic principles and are certified Demeter. Matthias has a vast knowledge about plants and insects, and about keeping the flora and fauna in harmony with the vines. Matthias Hager is one of the most experimental winemakers in the Kamptal region, Austria. He understood early how to work with different soil types from loess to clay. He established different product lines to highlight these differences: the blue one representing fresh, lively wines including Grüner Veltliner and Sauvignon Blanc; and the brown line gravitating towards more earthy, flavourful produce and the red line stands for no sulphites!
