In the year 1002, German King Henry II gave some acres of land in the village of Loiben as a donation to the Bavarian monastery of Tegernsee. Today’s manor from the 12th century was used in former times as a place for administration and storage by the Abbey of Tegernsee. In 1803 it became private property and has been possessed for five generations by our family.
The “Weingut Tegernseerhof” is a family enterprise with approximately 24 hectares of vineyards in the best crus (called “Rieden” in Austrian) of the Wachau such as Loibenberg, Kaiserberg, Kräutles, Superin, Kellerberg, Steinertal or in Krems such as Wolfsgraben, Sandgrube and Weinzierlberg.
Soil maintenance and plant protection is very carefully done. Green cover protects the earth against drainage and erosion. Permanent mowing of the weeds provides enough humus for the vines. Moderate pruning and thinning out the grapes in years of unfavourable weather conditions, guarantees healthy and ripe grapes in good quality.
The Mittelbach family mainly produce white wines: Grüner Veltliner, Riesling and a small volume of Chardonnay. The red varieties are: Blauer Zweigelt and Blauburger.
