The Eschenhof Holzer winery is located in Großriedenthal, in the Wagram wine region. Here the innovative wine maker, Arnold Holzer, draws on the unique bounty of nature, with a great deal of creativity, a distinctive style and a sense for delicious creations.
The name “Eschenhof” comes from the oak trees that stand in front of the farmyard and the old cellar on the winery street. This is where the red wine is stored.
They have since added a vineyard in the village of St. Georg in Neusiedlersee-Hügelland which became its own bottling.
The loess in this region creates the natural conditions for the rich wine. The soil drifted here in multiple layers during the last ice age, about 100.000 to 10.000 years ago and covered the sub soil with marine deposits. The loess soil in the region reaches an extraordinary height of up to 20 meters. Due to the valuable mineral composition, the loess soil creates a balanced depository of nutrients. Thanks to it’s small granules and high capillary, the loess soil is able to preserve water, and is thus permanently able to provide the deep reaching roots of the grapevines in Pannonian, low-rainfall climate with enough water. The wines that thrive in the loess region are distinguished by a particularly characterful, long lasting and delicate fruit.
