Wine of the Week - Weingut Diwald Gruner Veltliner “Grossriedenthaler Löss”

While many think of Gruner Veltliner as primarily a fresh, lively wine, the grape actually lends itself to much more depth and complexity when vinified in the right hands. Martin Diwald is one such young vintner, coaxing riper flavors and creamier textures from his wines, rendering a truly classic vinous profile.


Paula and Hans Diwald pioneered their winery’s conversion to completely organic viticulture during a time when chemicals and additives were prominent in winemaking. In 1980, the Diwalds converted their  four hectare farm into a vineyard. After some trial and error with chemical fertilizers, the two made the decision to farm organically in order to improve the quality of their fruit. Today Martin Diwald leads the second generation of the family’s commitment to producing authentic wine that reflects Wagram’s environment, resources, and land.
