The winery is located in the centre of the municipality of Spitz an der Donau in the Lower Austrian wine growing region Wachau. The Mauritiushof, built in the 13th century, served as a reading yard for the monks from Niederalteich some 600 years ago. The name has its origin in the neighbouring parish church, which is dedicated to St. Mauritius. The historically significant estate came into the possession of the Gritsch family in 1799. Since 2009, the seventh generation of the Gritsch family, Franz-Josef Gritsch and his wife Maria Theresia, have been running the estate.

Five apartments are offered for rent. Four, each named after one of the great vineyards of the Wachau, are located in the historic Mauritiushof. One of them is located in the modern Kalmuck Keller (see picture below), whose front is decorated with an innovative glass granulate facade with the famous Kalmuck pattern. While work is being done downstairs in the cellar, the wine is maturing and stored, guests can spend a short holiday in the holiday apartment "kalmuck LOFT" in the middle of the unique landscape of the Wachau.

Gritsch Mauritiushof - Kalmuck-Keller und Loft

The vineyards cover ten hectares in the areas Atzberg, Axpoint, Dürnsteiner Burg, Hartberg, Hochrain, Kalkofen, Klaus, Loibenberg, Pluris, Setzberg, Steinporz, Singerriedel and Tausendeimerberg. They are stocked with the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Neuburger, Muskateller and Sauvignon Blanc as well as Zweigelt. The selective vintage is done exclusively by hand in several passes.

Depending on the type of wine, the ageing process takes place in stainless steel tanks or in traditional large wooden barrels. Our main goal is to produce natural wines with fresh fruit and varietal character from physiologically ripe, healthy grapes. Premium wines include Grüner Veltliner Smaragd Singerriedel and Riesling Smaragd Tausendeimerberg. Since 2005, the branded wine "Kalmuck Wachau" from the best Spitzer sites has been available. It is named after the "Kalmuck-Janker", a winegrower's jacket with a typical check pattern. The winery is a member of Vinea Wachau Nobilis Districtus.
