Weingut Bründlmayer is situated in Langenlois, some 70 km north-west of Vienna, upstream along the Danube in the Lower Austrian Kamp Valley. The wooded hills of the Waldviertel protect the vineyards from the cold north-westerly winds. During the day, the sun warms the stony terraces, while at night the fresh, fragrant forest air drifts through the Kamp Valley into the Langenloiser Arena.
The mostly terraced vineyards situated far from road traffic are unique in their diversity. Willi Bründlmayer attaches great importance to the ecological balance:
Exclusively organic fertilizers are used in the vineyards. The natural resources – soil, sun, water, plants – are employed simply and intelligently.
People tend and graft, but do not force themselves into the foreground. Exhausted vineyards are dug out and left fallow for five years to allow the soil to recover.
Small water sumps have been provided around the vineyards to prevent erosion and improve the microclimate. No herbicides of any kind are used. The choice of vine training method is of utmost importance for maximum quality.
Willi Bründlmayer trains his vines just over ground level so that the grapes benefit from the soil heat – the stored and reflected light and heat from the rock – but high enough that they are not spattered with wet soil in thunderstorms.
