Kremstal | Stein

When Urban and Dominique Stagård took over the family estate in 2006, they set straight to reimagining its potential. Their vision had four elements: reclaiming obscure vineyards, reexamining the possibilities of iconic sites, farming based on a close study of soils, and making wine by drawing on knowledge and techniques of the past. Riesling, the variety the Stagårds say “speaks most to us,” is their clear focus though grüner veltliner finds a place in their work as well. Both varieties are grown organically (certified since 2009) on 17 hectares of exceptional sites scattered across the Kremstal and the Wachau.

Stagård 2019 Grüner Veltliner “Handwerk”

This grüner veltliner is sourced from a selection of south facing, mountain and terrace vineyards all in the Pfaffenberg, but specifically from two lieux-dits called Danzern and Pitschental. The grapes were crushed and macerated for 24hr before spontaneously fermenting in stainless steel, and 10% in neutral oak, where it remains on the lees and 2% whole berries for 8-10 months.
