North of the municipality of Theyern, where our family winery is located, lies the small Ried Brunndoppel in a small side valley of the Theyernbach (river). At 400 m above sea level, it is one of the highest and also steepest locations in the Traisental wine-growing region and belongs to the wine-growing community of Nußdorf ob der Traisen. Facing south, the vineyards stretch more or less in terraces over the slope, well protected by the nearby forest area that surrounds the vineyards to the west, north and east. Therefore, the temperatures cool down well at night and promote the formation of complex and fresh-looking aromas in the grapes.
The single vineyard is only managed by the Preiß family winery. Mainly Grüner Veltliner is grown here, the oldest vines were planted in the 1970s. In addition, vines of the varieties Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Zweigelt are grown. All wines from this distinctive location have a finely chiselled acidity, precise aromas and smooth elegance.
By the way: The name "Brunndoppeln" for this vineyard can be found in the Franciscan cadastre as early as 1821 and is very likely derived from earlier sources in the lower area of the vineyard, which have now been drained.
