Grüner Veltliner Strasser Weinberge
Martin Arndorfer comes from a long line of winemakers, and he grew up in the vineyards and cellar of his parent’s estate. Anna Stieninger is the daughter of Karl Steininger, one of the most respected winemakers in Austria. They are a wine power couple. Both born with a genetic love and a nurtured appreciation for for Riesling and Grüner Veltliner grapes.
In Strass the hills are full of vineyards, the flat close to the Danube River mostly grows grain. Arndorfer is located in the northern reaches where wine can grow, only 15 kilometers south it is considered too cold, and the land is dedicated to grain. This cool weather is important for the distinctive style of Arndorfer. Kamptal is mainly planted with white grapes, usually Grüner Veltliner and Riesling. The soil and climate help the grapes develop a unique regional expression.
The Arndorfers produce wine for pleasure and with pleasure. They pay close attention to the details, but ultimately believe that wine is for enjoyment, and not to be coveted or worshiped. It is nice to discuss wine, but it is there to enjoy above all else.
