Erich Berger is a humble grower in the Kremstal, located in the village of Gedersdorf. A Majority of the vineyards that he farms are devoted to Grüner Veltliner, the principle white variety of the Danube river valley.  “Erich no doubt suffers from journalistic underappreciation compared with his immediate neighbors” writes David Schilknecht in Vinous. Erich has become an ambassador for sustainable agriculture, becoming a member of Fair’n Green, a sustainable organization with members in France, Germany and Austria.

Erich’s Liter bottling of Grüner Veltliner has steadily improved over the last decade and is now one of the very best that we offer. It’s a perfect foil for the infectious drinkability that this variety is known for but has an extra level of clarity and complexity that is sometimes missing from this category. Fermented entirely in stainless steel from estate grown. Loess dominated vineyards in the Kremstal.
