"For some time now, it has been my father's dream to have his own winery. During our search, we came across this wonderful winery in southern Burgenland. It simply grabbed us. It was clear from the start that we were a good match and wanted to do this," says wine lover Veronika Lindner. And so, in 2020, with the new owners, the Lindner family of entrepreneurs from Lower Bavaria, and cellar master Edgar Brutler, a new era dawned for the Groszer Wein winery in southern Burgenland. It comes about with 2022 the first organically certified vintage on the market. Together with long-time winery manager Markus Bach, the team is also pursuing the goal of making the classic Groszer Wein and the new natural wine line with its great Eisenberg character from this smallest wine-growing region in Austria better known far beyond its borders. After an intensive phase of reorientation and pandemic-related standstill, Groszer Wein is now fit for the market and trade fairs. At the Düsseldorf ProWein from May 15 to 17 and the VieVinum in Vienna from May 21 to 23, Edgar Brutler and Markus Bach will present their classic Groszer wines and the new Naturals together for the first time.
Grosze family & new team. Veronika Lindner, a member of the owning family, is personally involved in all agendas of the winery. The Lindner family has been in the international construction business for over 55 years but has been investing in organic agricultural projects in emerging European regions for decades. With their company "Land.Luft" the family has established organic farming - 100% pasture farming, no animal transport. Cellarmaster Edgar Brutler brings a wealth of experience with him, having trained in Geisenheim and worked as a cellarmaster at Leo Hillinger, Markowitsch, and at his own family winery in Romania, where he runs his own natural wine line.
Back to nature! With the vintage 2021, there is already the second vintage Groszer wine of wines with whole grape pressing ("whole bunch"), macerated wines with little intervention, and wines with long maceration. The wines of the natural wine line have a different label. Grosze vision. In addition to Blaufränkisch, the Groszer Wein winery also relies on other red and white grape varieties to revitalize the diversity of the Eisenberg (including Rotburger, Syrah, Merlot, Welschriesling, Müller-Thurgau and Furmint).
