The Estate

Weingut Vorspannhof Mayr is located in the town of Dross, just a few kilometres distant from Krems, the State of Niederösterreich’s famous city of wine. Our estate once served as a waystation where travellers could change horses, with its own inn & agriculture, but today we focus on wine.

As winegrowers, we at the Vorspannhof Mayr feel committed to tradition & quality (and that’s why we are a member of the Österreichische Traditionsweingüter). Our goal is to vinify wines from the Kremstal that are typical of both variety and vineyard, which are impressive for their elegance and the sheer pleasure that they offer. We strive to vinify wines that express a sense of authenticity, that have not been altered by interventionist technology or laborious methods of treatment.

The respectful use of our resources is particularly important to us – with the vineyard sites, the old vines, the landscape, the buildings, the culture of wine and the individuals involved.
