Domäne Wachau joins our portfolio

We’re thrilled to announce that Domäne Wachau, producer of outstanding wines from Austria’s Wachau region, has joined our portfolio.

Known for the highest quality Grüner Veltliner, Domäne Wachau’s exclusive focus on the premium sector has earned it recognition as one of the best white wine producers in Austria.

Accounting for 30% of the Wachau vineyard area, almost 440 hectares are cultivated on steep terraces on the banks of the Danube river, and are part of a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site. A sustainable and environmentally conscious approach is central to the company’s philosophy, and biodiversity is promoted in the hand worked vineyards.

Winery Director Roman Horvath MW has worked at Domäne Wachau for almost 15 years “during that time we have overseen a re-structuring of the winery and the introduction of a new vineyard quality programme.  We are just about to finish the highest investment ever made at the winery, establishing a new state-of-the-art centralised reception and vinification facility which we will be inaugurating during the 2018 vintage.”

Export has always been important for us and will be even more so in the future. I am delighted to be working with Gonzalez Byass to move to the next level and reach even more consumers. We already work well with Gonzalez Byass in the USA. In the UK we are joining a portfolio of premium estates and know that the team at GBUK will also be great ambassadors for Domäne Wachau in the UK.”

Martin Skelton, Managing Director of Gonzalez Byass UK says “We have been blown away by the amazing quality of Domäne Wachau’s wines. They are a fantastic addition to our portfolio and we know they will be enthusiastically received by our customers throughout the trade.”

The wines will be available to order from 1st September 2018. Speak to your Account Manager for more information or email info@gonzalezbyassuk.com.
