Mittelbach/Tegernseerhof

The history of Tegernseerhofs reaches back over 1,000 years, when Emperor Henry II to the Benedictine monastery Tegernsee “two Huben country” in the Wachau presented. In 1176 it was built the Tegernseerhof – named after its owner.

Today, many centuries later, the Tegernseerhof is already in the 5th Generation owned by the family Mittelbach. His name is preserved, as is the ancient knowledge of wine, passed down from generation to generation.

The vineyards extend over Tegernseerhofs the most beautiful sites of the Wachau. They are characterized by steep terraces of solid bedrock, which are optimally caressed by the winds and the sun. The result is an incredible concentration of flavors that can be seen in the emeralds of the estate in many ways. Whether Grüner Veltliner or Riesling, each wine has its own personality – each with its own character.

Wachau
The Wachau is a UNESCO world heritage site and region of natural beauty, and lies in the Danube valley between the towns of Melk and Krems. Wachau is one of Austria’s most famous regions and is synonymous with intense, peppery Gruner Veltliner and rich, steely Riesling. The majority of Wachau’s vineyards are located on steep terraces hugging the river, which plays a vital role in moderating the warm summers and cold winters provided by the region's continental climate. The soil is also important to the wine styles. It is composed of loess and a special kind of gneiss known as gfohler, which yields grapes with high levels of minerality and extract. Riesling performs best in the weathered, granitic soils on the steeper terraces, while Gruner Veltliner prefers the sandier loess carried by prevailing winds over time to eastern hillsides.
