Mailberg / Weinviertel
The market town of Mailberg nestles into a natural basin in a picturesque setting surrounded by mountains. The majority of the slopes surrounding Mailberg are planted with vineyards. The Mailberg soils are calcareous and covered with loamy sands and loess.

Approximately 1,800 hours of sun per year and average annual precipitation levels of 450 mm offer ideal conditions for wine-growing. The fresh continental climate in the northerly Weinviertel and the wind-protected position of the vineyards in the small valley bestow the wine with a highly individual character, one to which it owed its fame even hundreds of years ago.

Souveräner Malteser-Ritter-Orden
Roughly 70 kilometres to the north west of Vienna, near the border with the Czech Republic in a little valley by the name of “Mailberg Valley”, lies the Castle Winery of the Sovereign Maltese Knight Order.

Weingutsleiter Norbert Gutmayer begleitet nun seit mehr als 20 Jahren die Weine des Weinguts von der Weingartenarbeit bis zur Abfüllung. Es gilt Güte vor Menge, folglich werden die Hektarerträge bewusst niedrig gehalten, um besonders aromatische, vollreife Trauben ernten zu können.
