Producer
The Leth winery is one of the leading examples of terroir and expression in the Wagram. This family winery is located in Fels, directly on the terraces of the Wagram River. The deep löss soils are excellently suited for Grüner Veltliner and it is no coincidence that half of the area under vine is planted with this variety. The Leth family is repected for his work sustaining indigenous varieties by collecting grape varieties previously grown in Austria and planted Austria's first living grape variety museum that showcases approximately 150 ancient grape varieties, most which had almost died out, others having never gained any major recognition, and a few having never been cultivated in practice. Today, Franz Leth Jr. has reinvented the winery through modernization, dense planting, and a pledge to sustainable viticulture. If that weren't enough, he is committed to demonstrating that his single vineyard wines are capable of developing with 10 to 30 years of bottle age.
