The vineyards of the Hofer organic winery are located around the village of Auersthal, about 25 km north of Vienna. Here in the southern Weinviertel the landscape is slightly hilly and most of the viticulture is practiced here, with organic viticulture becoming more an cd more popular. The Hofer organic winery has been operating organic viticulture for many years and has been converting to biodynamic viticulture according to Demeter guidelines since 2019. This is not only about the production of tasty, pure organic wines, but also about protecting the environment. There are numerous nesting boxes for birds in the vineyards, and flowering nitrogen-producing plants grow between the rows of vines. The work in the vineyards is done jointly by all family members.

What does the new DAC quality designation mean?
The term "Weinviertel DAC" describes the clear and recognizable character of the Gruener Veltliner in the Weinviertel with its popular "Pfefferl". DAC stands for "Districtus Austriae Controllatus" or "Austrian Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée". A Weinviertel DAC can only be the “Gruener Veltliner” of the Weinviertel region, which proves that it is typical for the region as a quality wine at blind tastings by an independent wine commission.
The real Gruener Veltliner from the Weinviertel is very pleasant to taste on its own; This of course includes typical Austrian dishes such as Wiener Schnitzel, cold dishes, vegetarian dishes or Southeast Asian cuisine.
