Bio-Weingut Geyerhof lies in the Krems Valley of Lower Austria. In 1986, Ilse Maier took over Geyerhof which has been in her family since the sixteenth century. In 1988 she and her husband Josef converted to organic viticulture and entire estate is certified organic. They farm 37 acres of vineyards in optimal sites which are distinguished by their proximity to the Danube River. The single vineyards of Geyerhof grow on a wide spectrum of soils; prehistoric stone, sandy soils and gravel provide perfect growing conditions for the various varietals. Geyerhof wines are single vineyard expressions of dry farmed, hand-harvested fruit. In the winery grapes are processed slowly by natural fermentation. Lees contact, neutral barrel aging and malolactic fermentation are carefully utilized to add complexity to the wines. Ilse Maier is a founding member of the Association of Female Wine Makers of Austria.

Tasting notes
Vivacious and elegant, the wine offers classic notes of green apple, pear and white pepper that are nicely framed by bright acidity and hints of subtle meadow herbs.

Technical notes
These southeast facing vines were planted from 1963-2002 in stony and relatively infertile soils. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve typicity and terroir. Sulfur is only added after fermentation and the wine remained sur lie until just before earth filtration and bottling.
