That certain something

Honest and unconventional.

We produce wines with character. Wines with rough edges. Handmade for individualists. For people who know what they want. Just like us. Our wine reflects who we are.

Welcome to Weinmanufaktur Clemens Strobl – in the wine region „Wagram“.

Our Work

A second generation family-owned winery.

Uncomplicated and no slave to tradition. Experimental and with curiosity. With passion and enthusiasm. Hand-crafted. Sustainability and respect for nature. Exclusively own grape material. Only us and our own vineyards.

Organic viticulture: sustainable and versatile. Leaving nature as it is. Intercropping. Cover crops. Water areas. It is worth it to respect nature and just to let it be. Our vineyards are wild places, with buzzing, twittering, growth, vitality. This earth is precious.

Terroir

The Wagram region.

Loam and loess, several metres in depth. Million year- old tertiary gravel. A soil that acts like sponge; soft and fertile with outstanding water retention. The promising region. Undiscovered and unknown. Best requirements as the Veltliner’s and also the Pinot Noir’s region of origin. Loose calcareous soil for burgundian conditions. The infamous Wagram leaves its impermeable mark on both the landscape and the wine. Mutual respect for both white and red wines.

Discover and enjoy the remarkable Wagram.

Pfaffenberg

On the natural border between Kremstal and the Wachau. One of the best sites in Austria for Riesling. It has Wachau “terroir”, with prehistoric stone terraces, steep and harsh. Bedrock soil with pockets of less topsoil. A real jewel.

Artisan

Hand-crafted sounds dirty – and it is.

Handmade with historic basket press. Barrel-matured. Concrete egg. Authentic and natural. Wines that are completely genuine, without frills. Not fussy. Not standardised. Dry. Spontaneous fermentation instead of cultured yeasts. To challenge ourselves over playing it safe. That‘s notalways easy, but it’s worth it in the long term. Minimal intervention.

Because sometimes less really is more.

Aged in stainless steel, wooden barrels or concrete.

Slow and gentle pressing. Vinification in a variety of containers for a precise, terroir-related palate with substance and finesse. Sometimes unfiltered.

Gut Wagram

At the foot of Schlossberg. In Kirchberg. The centre of the Wagram.

A property with soul and character. With charm. Tradition. And history, beginning in 1715. Falling apart. Forgotten. Old walls. Strong foundation. Exposed features.

A cultural heritage. Frescos. A home. For family and guests.

About an old cellar and new technology.

We discovered an old basket press and restored it. So now we’re using it again. Just like the old cellar which back then was constructed in the depths and cooled by groundwater. We’ve extended it. Equipped it with new technology. We’ve fitted it out with different vessels made of steel, wood and concrete to experiment. Now, it’s energy self-sufficient. Unusual, unconventional and modest. Perfect harmony.
