Single-vineyard Grassnitzberg was the first vineyard owned by family Tement and was planted in the early 50s. The old vines of the south south-east facing slopes grow on massive coralline limestone soil and are dominated by cool nights.
This Morillon (Chardonnay) impresses with deep minerality and structure.
May be drunk young, but we recommend 3-5 years bottle ageing. Long ageing potential.

Vision and Added Value
More than 15 years ago we started taking the first steps towards organic farming. We are now in the phase to convert to biodynamics. A logical step for us and a beginning without end. Every year we learn something new, observe nature and get closer to it bit by bit. We see our business as a form of modern circular economy in which wine is part of an overall concept. Partnerships with horse and cattle farmers have just as much space here as the use of the company’s own forest for energy production. Wine as a way of life.
