"Michael Moosbrugger produces genuine wines where quality and tradition are tied together to meet the future."
The soils in Niederösterreich are very diverse. One find Mica-schist in the Bohemian massif in the Kamptal region, but also bedrock weathered soils, covered with a thin coating of humus. The heart of Heiligenstein, an almost ideal partner for top-class Rieslings is a weathered desert sandstone from the Permian. Grüner Veltliner thrives on the gravel soils of Manhartsberg or the partly massive loess deposits that characterise the southern borders of this wine region.
A Passionate Lineage
Schloss Gobelsburg is an estate with history of wine making dating back to 1171, when Cistercian monks started planting vines and maintaining vineyards in this area. When Michael Moosbrugger and took over the winery in 1996, there were a wine cellar that met modern technological requirements. He is convinced that the future of high quality wine lies in individuality and character. High level of technology is necessary to warrant uniformity, but Michael Moosbrugger believes that a maximum of individuality and character can only be achieved through reducing the use of technology. Here the wines are crafted by individuals, based on experience and knowledge.
