Collection: Heidelinde & Markus Lang

Markus Lang cultivates around 2.5 hectares divided between the parcels of Steiner Schreck and Braunsdorfer. Markus was able to detect vines that were up to 100 years old and benefit from the low but sensorially exceptional yields of these lean soils. The Steiner Schreck vineyard is located about 320 meters above sea level and is one of the steepest sites in the Kremstal. The soils here are characterized by Gföller gneiss and granite. The Braunsdorfer vineyard is located in a side valley of the Danube with four to five meters of loess soil on bare rock, located about 250 meters above sea level. The vines are trained with crown walls 2.4 meters high.

The cellar has been set up in a deep cave dug into the rock where the wines mature for two whole years in contact with the lees in large wooden barrels. The grapes are pressed on an old 100-ton tree press designed by Markus, probably the most powerful in the world. For several days, his wines are pressed on it in the open air, before being pushed down into the rock cellar thanks to the downward pressure. The result is frank, clear and elegant wines capable of long aging.
