As early as the 1930's the Sonnhof estate was renowned for its pioneering efforts in viticulture and in winemaking – efforts that drew well-deserved praise in the following decades, especially from the 1960's on. At that time the estate of Josef Jurtschitsch was the most highly awarded winery in Langenlois. View all Jurtschitsch Wines
Jurtschitsch Gruve 2010
Gruner Veltliner from Austria
This Gruner Veltliner is the lightest of all the Jurtschitsch Estate wines. With its light-hearted spicy aromatics, freshening acidity, alcohol lightness and yet still full on the palate, this Gruener Veltliner has gathered fans from all over the world.
The Gruner Veltliner 2010 also turns out to be a wonderful aperitif, a gorgeous refreshment on a hot summers day, a pick-you-up after strenuous activities and a savory accompaniment to poultry and salads, smoked delicacies and pasta.
This splendid estate, which is referred to as the "house by the monastery", served as a winery for the monks of the neighboring Franciscan order well into the 18th century. Since 1868, the Sonnhof has been in the possession of the Jurtschitsch family.

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%.
