Weingut Hiedler is owned and run by husband and wife team, Ludwig Hiedler and Maria Angeles Hiedler-Bustos. It is a 15-hectare estate situated in the prime quality Austrian vine growing territory at Langenlois/Kamptal. The ancient tanning town of Langenlois close to the Danube, has been the home of the Hiedlers since 1853. The current generation is made up of Ludwig and his charming Spanish wife Maria-Angeles, whose wines combine Teutonic rigour and Mediterranean artistry to great effect. Their winery is now one of the leading names in Kamptal, their wines perfectly expressing all that is great about Austrian wine. They are equally at home with Riesling and Grüner Veltliner and have built an enviable reputation for expertise with both varieties
The vineyards are cultivated using lutte raisonnée i.e. green and straw covering between rows, fertilisation with compost and manure, no herbicide usage. The harvest is done manually with three passes through the vineyard, with the carefully selected grapes being brought to the winery in small tubs. The grapes are fermented slowly and the wines are then matured in steel tanks or acacia barrels.
The Hiedler estate is a member of the Traditionsweinguter of Austria.
