The wines keep constant high level and are usually the best in their respective category in the area. Weaknesses, there is little, but can occur in difficult vintages. However, this must be balanced in good years with particularly compelling assortments so that an operation can hold the status. In most cases you can blindly buy.

The origin of this winegrowers' cooperative in the town of Krems in Lower Austria with the address Sandgrube 13 goes back to the Hauerinnung von Krems und Stein, the oldest winegrowers' guild in the German-speaking world, founded in 1447. In 1938, quality-conscious winegrowers of the Hauerinnung Krems und Stein founded Winzer Krems. From the 1950s to the 1970s, many surrounding winegrowers' cooperatives were incorporated into WINZER KREMS. From 1989 to 2019 Franz Ehrenleitner was responsible as managing director. During this time, a completely new press house with fermentation and ripening cellar, equipped according to the most modern standards, was put into operation, the Bründlgraben wine cellar was expanded and the wine experience world "Sandgrube 13 wein.sinn" was implemented with around 30,000 visitors annually. During a tour of eight stations, visitors can take a look behind the scenes of Winzer Krems. Since 2019 Ludwig Holzer is now responsible for the project.

Winzer Krems - Betriebsgebäude

WINZER KREMS obtains the grapes from around 900 contract winegrowers from 1,200 hectares of vineyards in five Lower Austrian wine-growing regions. Most of the contract vineyards are located in Kremstal, but also Kamptal, Traisental, Wachau and Wagram. The best known sites are Kremser Goldberg and Kremser Wachtberg for Grüner Veltliner as well as Kremser Kremsleiten and Kremser Kreuzberg. The winegrowers are advised and supported by specialists all year round in new planting, pruning, plant protection, soil cultivation, leaf care, thinning out and the choice of the best possible harvesting time. Vineyard work is based on the guidelines of integrated plant protection.

Harvesting is carried out according to a precise harvest plan and is carried out separately according to grape varieties, different quality levels and individual areas of origin. The white wine grapes are juiced using gentle whole grape pressing. The three main varieties are Grüner Veltliner (60%), Zweigelt (20%) and Riesling (5%), others include Gelber Muskateller, Weißburgunder(Pinot Blanc), Chardonnay and St. Laurent.

The wines are produced in the premium lines "Kellermeister Privat" (gastronomy) or "Weinmanufaktur Krems" and "Edition Chremisa" (food trade). The export share has grown successively in recent years and amounts to more than half of the production. A big topic at WINZER KREMS are vintage wines. In the "Vinothekkeller Bründlgraben", newly revitalised in 2014, treasures dating back to the 1940s are stored under excellent conditions and are still offered for sale today.
