Undhof Salomon Kremstal Undhof Kogl Trocken 2009
The region was founded in the eighth century when monks who followed Charlemagne's army down the Danube saw the grape growing potential of its south-facing terraces.
In 1780 the Salomon family acquired the Undhof (a farm building once part of a Capuchin monastery) and started producing wines there in 1792. The Salomon's ancestors were boatmen involved in the salt trade with their wine business only a sideline. Today Salomon is one of the most progressive and quality driven wineries in Austria, making Riesling and Grüner Veltliner of stunning purity and elegance.
Salomon Undhof is deservedly regarded as a pioneer of Austrian winemaking being the first to export its wines in 1935. The company now exports over half its production. Salomon Undhof is managed by the charismatic Bertold Salomon, who until 1991 was the president of the Austrian Wine Marketing Board.
For the last 222 years, Salomon Undhof has produced white wines from the best terraced sites along the Danube. Crystal clear wines with fine minerality. The style of Salomon Undhof wines is an alliance between character, balance and harmony. Wines meant to be drunk young are fresh and subtle; wines for keeping acquire with age a luscious complexity. The wines of Salomon Undhof are found on the finest tables all over the world. The winery is situated in the the eastern part of the "cultural world heritage site" Wachau with the appellation Kremstal DAC. Salomon Undhof is founding member of the association Traditionsweinguter Osterreich.
