We are in the easternmost region of Austria, in Kamptal, where the Hager family has owned 20 hectares of land for several generations. Of these now only seven are not used for viticulture, planted with wheat and fruit trees.
Initially it was a farm with many animals, but then Matthias' father specialised in wine growing, and the rest is history.
The farm has been biodynamically managed since 2005, the most cultivated varieties are Gruner Veltliner, Riesling and Zweigelt.
The production area is influenced by a rather harsh continental climate with very cold winds and nights, typical of the Waldviertel area. The soil is varied, ranging from clay to loess (i.e. sand), from schist to granite via gneiss.
The resulting wines are characterised by great drinkability and a very pronounced personality.
