History & Geography
Due to the massively varying topography we are able to grow a large range of grape varieties requiring quite large temperature variations that would not normally exist near each other. Night time temperatures vary up to 20 degrees within a short distance due to the large hills providing a catchment for cool air to drop down through the valleys. As an example the Gruner Veltliner grows in a high valley with warm days and very cool nights, which provide the best flavours and strong pepper character in the grapes which is one of the signature characteristics of Gruner Veltliner. Right nearby on a steep NE slope grows the Cabernet Sauvignon - above the cool air that drops into the bottom of the valley.
