Interview with Willy Brundlmayer, owner and winemaker. Weingut Brundlmayer (or Bruendlmayer) is an old family winery that is located in Langenlois, about one hour away from Vienna in Austria. Today it is run by Willy Bruendlmayer.
They have some very old vineyards with vines that are even 80-100 years old.
Because of global warming and the climate changes they are becoming a moderately cool region and are now making more and more red wine too.
He makes more than 20 different wines, many from parcel / vineyard selections. He is very fond of making the soil and microclimate express itself.
The main grape varieties are gruner veltliner, riesling, pinot noir, pinot blanc, pinot gris, . . .
They also make an excellent sparkling wine from the different pinot grapes.
“Weingut Bruendlmayer is situated in Langenlois, some 70 km north-west of Vienna, upstream along the Danube in the Lower Austrian Kamp Valley. The wooded hills of the Waldviertel protect the vineyards from the cold north-westerly winds. During the day, the sun warms the stony terraces, while at night the fresh, fragrant forest air drifts through the Kamp Valley into the Langenloiser Arena.”
