We can thank our professional ethos and the steadfast character of the Triebaumers for the fact that we were making fantastic red wines in 1985/86 - and a very special Mariental. For us it was just confirmation of what we had know all along, but for Austrian wines it was a giant step. And now the word is coming cull circle. The whole era of industrialisation passed us by, and we took no part. Now, when people are turning back to hand-made wines, we are still there.

You can´t really label our pigeonhole, but we call our business philosopy unconventional, Greening, grazing, selective hand-picking, careful protection of grapes, juice and wine, sponaeous fermentation, ageing in wooden vessels of between 300 und 5000 litres, thes are all givens. Along with the two native varities Blaufränkisch and Blauburgunder we are also keen on Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. We need them to widen our potential to suit different soils and sites specific working requirements.
