Schmelzer weingut

The paths that we are treading with our wines in the fourth generation are diverse: we strive to work carefully and sustainably both in the vineyards and in the cellar.

That may well mean that we rethink supposed laws in order to get even closer to the originality. All the options have one thing in common: respect for nature, which we are happy to take care of and preserve.

In order to do our best, we not only rely on the knowledge of the generations before us, but also on a very original signal: intuition.

This confirms to us again and again that the path of gentle, intelligent biodynamics is the right one to follow our personal path together and successfully with nature.

We work our vineyards according to Demeter guidelines and thus far exceed the requirements of organic viticulture! Not only do we forego the use of pesticides and chemical pesticides, we also use all kinds of biodynamic preparations to revitalize the soil and keep the vines healthy. The goal of our work is not to maximize, but to harmonize and support nature in its fertility - year after year.

Our vinophile offer reflects the diversity of the region with its rich potential to give the different grape varieties their original expression.

We vinify dry and sweet wines. We give red wines aged in oak barrels the time they need to shape their characters. We only put them on sale when their flavor profile is typical for the variety. Our white wines are also vinified carefully and mostly by hand, whereby we reduce the technology to a minimum in favor of the original taste. In autumn 2013 we presented our sulfur-free and unfiltered wines “Magic of Renunciation” and “Simple and Moving” for the first time.
