Centuries ago, monks living in the Wachau region began to recognize quality boundaries and drew up border lines. Not only were they motivated by the desire to make the best possible wine, they were also passionate about the variations – sometimes marked, sometimes barely noticeable – from one vineyard to the next and thus between their respective products.
Each of the vineyards ranged side by side in the Wachau may be described as a great soloist, and together they make up a grand orchestra. Whether it's intuition or myth, emotion or reality, there's one thing we know: that the place, time and people have to be just right to make wine from a certain crop. And that is the fine art of wine-making.
