Everything that Weingut Knoll produces is on a cult level from their dry Rieslings and Gruners to their epic labels featuring St. Urban. Even the tasting notes of these wines could fill books and books. The winery, situated overlooking the Danube, has been making wine in the Wachau in Austria since the 1950s started by Emmerich and Monika, though now their sons help in the winemaking. The wines are famously intense, mineral-forward and can age for years and years.
Pfaffenberg is one of the most famous sites in Austria. It is so steep that the vines are terraced. The nights are cooler due to its location next to the river and the soils are poor resulting in vines that really struggle looking for nutrients below ground.
