Martiniloben - Open Cellar Doors.

November has come and with it the usual cold and foggy times. It’s starting to get uncomfortable on the outside so the most interesting things are now happening inside our winery. New wines have to be bottled and a lot of things need to be done in the wine cellar. Now is an ideal time for every wine-enthusiast to visit the cellar and taste the young vintage 2007. The upcoming weekend will offer the very best opportunity to do so at the annual day of open cellar doors in Gols!

Wine Harvest

Monday, September 10, 2007

After a few days break last week we were able to continue with the harvest. We picked Riesling and most notably Zweigelt, the latter is now even finished for this year. Since we had to take another rain-caused break this week we are of course very happy about this as well as about the quality of this years Zweigelt grapes. This week we will harvest Blaufränkisch and Merlot which leaves only Cabernet Sauvignon and Pinot Blanc behind. Both are scheduled for a later date, especially the Pinot Blanc which we plan to harvest as a Spätlese or “Late Harvest” wine.

Red wine tasting in summer.
Almost one year after the last harvest it is now time to bottle the first red wines of the 2006 vintage. They had enough time to mature in their casks and are now already very enjoyable to drink. We used the hot days of the past weeks to stay in the cool cellar and bottle the first reds. First impressions prove what we already knew from prefvious tastintgs. The year 2006 turned out to be a great red wine vintage and will receive lots of attention in times to come.Read more »

In the Middle of Spring

Saturday, April 21, 2007

… lots of things are going on in our vineyards. The early spring and the warm weather affected our vines very favourably. Currently we are about 3 weeks ahead in terms of growth and it looks like the good weather will stay with us for some time to come. The new vintage has begun and we could not have wished for a better start.
