The vineyard "Kartäuserhof - Karl Stierschneider" is located in the community of Weißenkirchen in the Lower Austrian wine growing region Wachau. The traditional farm was built in 1380 as a reading farm
of the Carthusian monastery Aggsbach, from which the name is derived. In 1862, it was taken over by the Stierschneider family and is now run by Karl Stierschneider in the third generation. The vineyards comprise ten hectares of vines in the Achleiten
, Hinterkirchen, Klaus
and Steinriegl vineyards on south-facing terraced sites. They are planted to 90% with white wine varieties such as Grüner Veltliner, Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Gelber Muskateller, the remaining 10% with the red wine varieties Zweigelt and Pinot Noir. Among the premium wines are the Vinea Wachau Nobilis Districtus
, the red wine cuvée "Decimo", which is aged for 26 months in barriques. About 80,000 to 100,000 bottles of wine are produced annually.
