Paul D.

Young wine-maker Paul D. likes nature: ”nature is life. It is interesting what grows within one year, bears fruit and dies away.” As one of eight grandchildren of the Direder family in Kirchberg am Wagram (Austria, 50 km west of Vienna) he adopted from his grandfather the passion for wine. Paul D. grows with his responsibility – while his grandfather Leopold Direder stands by the side of his 1989-born grandson with knowledge and competence.

The wine-growing region of Wagram received its new name in 2007, previously being known as Donauland. The name Wagram comes from "Wogenrain" meaning "shore". The vines are planted in two distinct zones; to the north and to the south of the Danube. The extensive geological features coupled with consistent weather and climatic patterns offer the prerequisites for producing full-bodied wines rich in aroma and flavour with textbook terrior attributes. The deep layers of loess, that were deposited on the shores of the receding primordial ocean shape the landscape and give the wine its unmistakable character. The growing conditions are ideal for the country's iconic Gruner Veltliner, which produces rich and full-bodied white wines with a characteristic creamy texture.
