This winery is named after the monastary of Tegernsee that was given the land in 1002 where the winery sits today. Now in its 6th generation of private ownership under the Mittelbach family, Martin continues the work of his father Franz. They balance modern winemaking techniques with traditional varietals and vineyard management. This Grüner is sourced exclusively from Martin’s lower terraced vineyards that rise from the shores of the Danube River. The ‘Smaragd’ designation means that Martin let these grapes ripen further yet fermented the wine dry, creating a rich, and full-bodied Grüner with notes of stone fruit and herbs, and a steely, driving mineral palate.
