Ebner-Ebenauer

Winery History
Marion Ebner left home at the tender age of 16 to begin her winemaking career with the highly respected Fritz Wieninger, but her big break came when she bought some Grüner Veltliner fruit from Schloss Gobelsburg and aged it in new oak barrels to create a wine called Melusine. The critics went wild for it and Marion established herself as one of the most exciting young winemakers in Austria. Today Marion and her husband Manfred Ebenauer run their 10 hectare estate in Weinviertal on the land that Manfred’s family have farmed for generations - the couple took the reins in 2007. Despite their youth, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate proclaims that Marion and Manfred have “already pulled into the qualitative forefront of their region” and there is no doubt that this dynamic duo are producing wines of startling quality and value for money.

Viticulture/Winemaking Style
Their vineyards are on average quite distinguished, with some vines over 60 years old and all farmed organically or biodynamically. Natural yeast is a given for all of their wines. The soil tends to be mostly dense Calcareous loam and loess, mixed with sand. Their Hermannsachern vineyard is unique, its clay soil laced with fossil limestone, creating that incredible mineral lift. Ebner-Ebenauer's house style is one of elegance and freshness, with superb intensity and grip married to bright fruit on the palate. The Grüner and Riesling are fermented and aged in tank, left on the lees for seven months and then bottled in late spring.

Grape Varieties
Gruner Veltliner, Riesling, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Noir, St. Laurent
