STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
The history of wine-making in Europe is indelibly linked with the monastic orders. Some may see this as a remnant of the past but history comes alive at Schloss Gobelsburg. Run by the Cistericans until very recently it has been producing wine on a number of different sites here since the 12th century. Modern technology has also been eschewed in favour of a more traditional philosophy and the quality is such that a number of it’s single-site vineyards are now world-renowned. This Icewine is only made only selected vintages and is a pillar of the estates reputation, with good reason.
