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 30 year old vines planted on .5 ha of loess soil called ‘Lindobel’, the grapes are hand-harvested in mid-to-late September, while undergoing vineyard sorting. Maceration lasts 6 hours, followed by spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel with ambient yeasts, lasting 25 days with four months on lees. Aged in stainless steel for four months.

Filtered at bottling.
