The Weingut Stadt Krems Story

Fritz Miesbauer is the inspiration behind this very fine company. As the name suggests, the company and its 35 hectares of vines belong to the city of Krems. It is located right in the town, close by the old city walls. This city winery traces its origins back to 1452. But back in 2003, when Fritz arrived they needed investment and dynamic leadership, and Fritz has brought both. This is now a thoroughly modern operation, and the city leaves Fritz a free hand in all his initiatives. The cellar has been developed, expanded and totally modernised, the vineyards have been renovated and replanted and the range of wines rationalised.   (LF 4/20)

Weingut Stadt Krems Wines

This is a story of continued renovation and partial replanting, carried out by the most jovial Fritz Miesbauer and his henchman, ‘Goosey’, with the considerable increase in quality of the wines a testament to the pair’s energy and initiative. The estate comprises different parcels of varied terroir, including schist and also conglomerate rock, which produce a distinctive range of single vineyard wines showcasing the variety of styles of this area. These wines use the distinctive Vinolok closure: a neat glass stopper. Year on year improvements here are dramatic.
