Artur Toifl

(Niederosterreich, Austria)

"My passion, my experimentation facility, wines require the experience and patience."

Prior to 2003, Artur was working as the head winemaker at Fred Loimer in Langenlois and is now the head winemaker at his family's estate, Weingut Thiery-Weber. However, Artur has a secret passion of his own: a small half-hectare of Grüner Veltliner vines around 30 years old, in the small village of Rohrdorfer, called Lindobel. The vines are planted on a meter of loess soil and has, since 2010, been practicing organic and biodynamic treatments. Artur's goal is to create wines that stray from the mainstream, show their origins, and that are made as technically precise as possible.

Gruner Veltliner, Kremstal DAC, ‘Lindobel’

100% Gner Veltliner

From the winemaker at Weingut Thiery-Weber, Artur Toifl, has crafted his own personal cuvee ‘Lindobel’. With 30 year old Grüner Veltliner vines planted on loess soil on a .5 ha site called Lindobel, the yields are low at 15 hl/ha and are hand harvested in mid-September to beginning of October. Maceration lasts 5 hours, followed by fermentation in stainless steel lasting 15 hours and spends 4.5 months on lees. Aged in stainless steel for five months.
