Weingut Winkler-Hermaden is a winery located on the Kapfensteiner Kogel, an extinct volcano, in south-eastern Styria. The 40 ha of vineyards are now husbanded by the third generation of our family according to organic guidelines. 28 ha of the vineyards are in Kapfenstein, whilst 12 ha can be found in Klöch, just 15 km away. We have managed the latter since 2004, when we took it over from the Gräflich Stürgkh'schen Weingut.
Our main white varieties are Sauvignon blanc, Traminer & Gewürztraminer, while we also produce Burgundies including Weissburgunder and Grauburgunder. The most significant reds in our repertoire are the Blauer Zweigelt, 100% of which is found in our well-known Olivin. The Blauer Zweigelt is followed by Merlot and Pinot noir.
Aside from nurturing varietal typicity, we also emphasize the ability to recognize the characteristics of the region and the individual vineyard in the wine. That is especially apparent in the so-called Lagenweine. These wines originate from very specific vineyards, and sections thereof, whose soil, microclimate and grapes produce a unique wine character.
