The steep terraces of desert sandstone and volcanic shale produce powerful,minerally, incredible Rieslings with ageing potential and a precise structure reminiscent of white,  exotic fruits. Karl Steininger prides himself on having his base wine come from higher-quality vineyards, before a second bottle fermentation. An aromatic and textured sparkling, balanced with fresh minerality, lively white fruits and a long finish.

Karl Steininger

This family run winery is situated in the postcard perfect Austrian village, Langenlois, deep in the beautiful Kamptal Valley, Austria. This region is one of the most prestigious in Europe for rich and savoury Grüner Veltliner and, luckily, it is the speciality wine of this 25 hectare estate. Karl Steininger’s family tree has a winemaker on almost every branch. This family history is a badge of honour for many great winemakers, including Karl, and it is what drives him on to ensure his wines are the best possible representation of their land. Karl’s chief lesson to his children, the next generation of winemakers at Weingut Steininger, is that good wine cannot be rushed. It must be given the time it needs to develop, mature and evolve into the beautiful drink in front of us today. Perhaps it’s no surprise then that Philip Blom, the Austrian wine critic calls his Grüner Veltliner “a wine of aristocratic elegance”.
