The famous Riesling of the estate thrives on the top sites of Kögl and Pfaffenberg. The Grüner Veltliner Von Stein comes from the steep terrassed hills behind the old town of Stein. The best 'loess " soils provide the Lindberg and Wachtberg Grüner Veltliner. All the grapes are harvested traditionally by hand only. Their great vineyard locations and meticulous work in the vineyards are prerequisites for their elegant wines. Wines with finesse and perfect mineral balance reflect the very special micro climate of this lovely river valley. - Winery Note
Founded in 1792 SALOMON UNDHOF is a wine estate with a long tradition. The Salomon family own 20 hectares of vineyards which are planted with equal amounts of Riesling and Grüner Veltliner as well as a tiny amount of 'Gelber Traminer' on the best terraced sites along the Danube River in Stein and Krems. Today Bert and Gertrud Salomon run the winery.
Matching each grape variety with the right soil and climate has always been the main focus of Salomon's Viticultural efforts. The loamy soils offer optimum conditions for Grüner Veltliner, while the Riesling from Undhof thrives on primary rock soils in the single vineyards 'Kögl' and 'Pfaffenberg'. These are soils identical with those of the Wachau, which borders on Stein in the west. The Estate's Grüner Veltliner and Riesling distinguish themselves through elegance and consistency. - Importer Note
