For Michaela and Erich, the origin principle is held in high esteem, meaning that the foundation for their high quality wines is to be found already in the vineyards. The proper soil for each grape variety to benefit from the regional strengths. Thus, dense wines rich in finesse with a typical grape variety character can grow. Whereas, in the first years, the "Grüner Veltliner" was the centre of attention, the winegrowers managed to make themselves an internationally renowned name by their Riesling wines from the Gaisberg and the Heiligenstein as well as the Grauburgunder and Chardonnay Barrique wines. Being an economist by profession, Michaela Haas is responsible for the marketing activities. View all Allram Wines
Allram Gruner Veltliner Trocken Kamptal Strassertaler 2007
Gruner Veltliner from Austria
#45 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2009
This Grüner Veltliner combines famous vintages of the Strasser valley, with its soils made up of primary rock, rubble and loess. This results in a typical, fruity Veltliner: A perfect achievement for those who appreciate the Veltliner in its early stage.
Wine SpectatorThis elegant Grüner has an intense minerality that is supported by a vibrant acidity. There's fine balance to the grapefruit, lentil and white pepper flavors, with hints of anise and savory herb on the precise finish. Drink now through 2018. 500 cases imported.
After having split the parental winery in 1992 between sister Birgit and Michaela Haas, she is in charge of the original winery located in Straß together with her husband Erich. A lot has been done ever since. As the old cellar was too small, it needed to be replaced by a completely new one. What had been created is a three floor cellar construction, where the concept of the free fall could be very well used; the old, existing wooden barrel cellar was cleverly integrated.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
