Get to know Josef Mantler, a young descendant of a historic winemaking family from the Kremstal region of Austria. In this episode, you’ll get to learn about the loess ruled Kremstal region that flourishes at the meeting point of three other wine regions. Moreover, Josef tells us which varieties thrive on their mostly terraced vineyards, and shares the true legend of the indigenous Neuburger grape. The organic Mantlerhof winery has the oldest records of Roter Veltliner cultivation in the world, so Josef is a genuine source for diving deep into what this grape prefers and why it hasn’t reached the same fame as Grüner. Furthermore in discussion: the 2020 vintage, challenges of organic viticulture in Kremstal and in general, the evolution of the Austrian single vineyard system, and what the future holds for the Mantlerhof estate. Young winemaker speaking with a wisdom belying his age but underlying his authentic wines. Please enjoy.
