In the southern Styrian Großriede Steinbach in Gamlitz there a centuries-old vineyard (est. 1197) in a premier location had fallen into disrepair.
In 2015 Siegfried Wolf decided to take over the historic vineyard and empower it to be used again for wine-making. The soil was reprocessed and rejuvenated, the area planted with vines, the 28 hectares of vineyards are dominated by sunny, steep slopes and high-quality sand and limestone soils. The Sauvignon Blanc world champion Reinhard Muster is responsible for the production.
Domaine Wolf also owns 10 hectares of cultivation area in Ried Hochberg, Deutschkreutz in Central Burgenland. Legendary winemaker Albert Gesellmann takes over the management of the vineyards and wine production there.
The expertise of two award-winning winemakers paired with unique and exceptional vineyards as well as the resources of Domaine Wolf – means wine that will last forever.
Sigi Wolf was born in Styria into a farming family with many children. He learned mechanical engineering and had a meteoric rise in his career in Austria, later in Canada and in Russia. His longing for Austria and for home led him back again. In 2015 he acquired the first vineyards in Central Burgenland and Southern Styria. His goal is to produce top quality that satisfies connoisseurs with the highest demands all over the world. That’s why he hired the most outstanding winemakers for his project.
