Our new single vineyard vintages available from September 2017
Our single vineyard wines are only produced in exceptional years and we are excited to announce that our new vintages; Kirchberg Grüner Veltliner 2016 and Kirchberg Blaufränkisch 2015, are now ready for release and will be available to purchase from September 2017.
Kirchberg is a vineyard that lies at the heart of the Hoepler Estate and is one of the top sites in Burgenland. Its’ terroir was originally recognised by the Cistercian monks from Heilgenkreuz who, in 1203, were the first to plant vines and bring their French viticulture to the area. These monks were given this land by King Emmerich and over the years they nurtured their vines and transformed an area, that was known as a swamp, into a paradise for wine. Today grapes continue to excel in this mild Pannonian climate, the reflection from Lake Neusiedl brings warmth and acts as a climate moderator. This enables our grapes to really reach their full potential and express their true varietal characteristics and flavour profile.
