The vineyard also known as "Grabengritsch" is located in the community of Vießling near Spitz an der Donau in the Lower Austrian wine growing region of Wachau. A Heuriger is attached. We also offer the organization of events, as well as tastings, vineyard tours or cellar tours. The winery is managed by Josef Gritsch. The steeply terraced vineyards comprise six hectares of vines on primary rock soils in the Spitzer Graben in the locations Bruck, Panoramaweg, Schaffenfeld, Schön, Setzäcker and Setzberg. They are 90% planted with the white wine varieties Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Neuburger, Chardonnay, Gewürztraminer and Gelber Muskateller, the rest with the red wine varieties Zweigelt and St. Laurent. Some of the vines are over 50 years old. The vineyard work is carried out according to ecological principles with optimisation of soil life and minimal use of chemical treatments.
The wines are produced in the traditional way in combination with modern cellar technology with the aim of long storage life by applying slow-food methods in grape and wine production. However, techniques such as osmosis, dehydration or artificial aroma treatment, as well as the use of wood chips or sugar are generally avoided. Around 30,000 bottles of wine are produced annually. The product range also includes Frizzante, bottle-fermented sparkling wine and fine brandies. The winery is a member of the Vinea Wachau Nobilis Districtus winegrowers' association and the Marivini association (apricot and wine).
