Weingut Stadt Krems was originally founded by the city of Krems in 1452 to support a local hospital for city residents. With over 550 years of history, Weingut Stadt Krems is one of the oldest wine producers in Europe.  Since July 2003, the estate is managed by a young, innovated team directed by Fritz Miesbauer.  The flagships are Riesling and Gruner Veltliner (over 90%).

Tasting Notes

Brilliantly clear with just a touch of a golden hue. The nose is floral effused with mandarin essences, some herb garden undertones and the quintessential peppery tickle. There is a subtler citrus flavor on the palate that lingers, as well as some mellow spice notes.

Food Pairing

Pair with pan seared Chilean sea bass covered with herbs d’Provence & Beurre Blanc over steamed asparagus topped with lemon zest, and prosciutto.
