Founded in 1792 SALOMON UNDHOF is a wine estate with a long tradition. The Salomon
family from the Wachau produces white wines from the best terraced "Urgestein" sites along the
Danube River in Stein and Krems. Today Bert and Gertrud Salomon run the winery.
The famous Riesling of the estate thrives on the topsites of Kögl and Pfaffenberg. The Grüner
Veltliner Von Stein comes from the steep terrassed hills behind the old town of Stein. The best
"loess" soils provide the Lindberg and Wachtberg Grüner Veltliner. All the grapes are harvested
traditionally by hand only. Their great vineyard locations and meticulous work in the vineyards
are prerequisites for their elegant wines. Wines with finesse and perfect mineral balance reflect
the very special micro climate of this lovely river valley. The Estate’s Grüner Veltliner and
Riesling distinguish themselves through elegance and consistency.
Fifty percent of the production is exported, to the USA, the EU and Australia as main markets.
The cosmopolitan wine growers complement their Austrian white wines with a range of big reds
which they produce at SALOMON ESTATE in South Australia. In Sydney or Melbourne you
will have a good chance to find a Riesling Kögl on a fine restaurant’s wine list.
SALOMON UNDHOF's wines stem from the best vineyard terraces in Stein and
Krems an der Donau. Kremstal, the surrounding wine region, is practically
synonymous with an age-old wine culture. The symbiosis of loess and ancient stone
soils with the Danube-influenced microclimate and old vineyard terraces yields the
optimal growth conditions for aromatic, elegant white wines.
The 25 hectares of Salomon Undhof's vineyards are home to roughly equal parts
traditional Riesling and Grüner Veltliner grapes, as well as a Gelber Traminer vineyard.
Each of these wines reflects the distinctive microclimate of its greater environs.
