Viniculture in the Austrian region of Krustetten, located south of the Danube, has a long tradition. With the help of the Göttweiger Stiftsarchives this craft can be traced back to the year 1270.
The Müller family also produces their wines in the third generation in Krustetten at the foot of the Göttweiger Berg. The Müller Winery was founded by grandfather Leopold in 1936 with a vineyard area of 3 hectares. In the meantime the area has been extended to a proud 90 hectares, which are taken care of with much passion and personal commitment.
The family-owned company is now managed by the brothers Leopold and Stefan Müller, who took over the company in 2009 and have perfectly divided up their tasks: While Leopold, a graduate of the Krems Graduate School of Viticulture and Fruit-growing, is responsible for the vinification and marketing of the wines, Stefan takes care of the carefully laid out vineyards.
The vineyards of the Müller winery are located in the southern Krems valley around the Göttweiger Berg. They stretch up the Danube up to the Wachau after tolls. The Grüner Veltliner and Riesling grape varieties are the leading varieties of the Krems Valley in the Müller Winery with an area of 50 hectares. Furthermore, the white wines Yellow Muscat, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Blanc are cultivated. Among the red wines, the Zweigelt with an area of 10 hectares plays an important role, but also St. Laurent, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon are represented.
Müller strives to work in harmony with nature and to take into account the special circumstances of the individual sites in order to produce beautiful, individual wines. In our own vineyard, the best vines from the vineyards are further propagated and the quality of the ripening fruit is optimized. Before the grape harvest, Stefan's fruits are checked - only when they have reached the perfect taste and degree of ripeness are they selectively harvested and brought into the press as quickly as possible, without any loss of quality.
