Weingut Johann und Hedwig Gassler

Our story

Crafting wine has a noteworthy tradition in our family. Our estate was built over generations. Already around 1800 the Gassler family settled in Hautzendorf and started growing vines and other farm crops in a region north-east of Vienna, now known as the Weinviertel (Wine quartier).

In 1981, Johann and Hedwig took over. Pulling together, our every day challenge is to craft wines with distinctive taste and character that please and are easy to drink. So while tasting, you feel the personal touch, the careful work in the vineyards, and the gentle processing in the cellar. Moreover, running a family estate comes with great responsibility for the environment we depend on. Thus, working our vineyards we try to reduce our environmental pressure to support fertile and healthy soils, clean streams and a diverse fauna and flora for the generations after us.

The next generation is as enthusiastic about crafting wine. With new ideas and youthful drive, Birgit and Johannes have a valuable impact on our wines. Birgit has shown her special interest in wine when running for Wine Queen of Lower Austria in 2007. For two years she was a charming ambassador of wine for Lower Austria, presenting wine at countless national and international tastings and events.
