The roots of the winery & family Zöhrer anno 1270 go back up to the time of the Babenberger in the history of Austria. Around 1300 Albrecht I (1255-1308) enfeoffed twenty of his most loyal followers with farmland, orchards
and vineyards in and around Weinzierl (today a district of Krems), the feudal lords of Krems/Weinzierl.
The knowledge and the tradition was put Anton Zöhrer in the cradle through generations.We work consistently on it to exhaust the potential of the big single vineyards, which belong to the most important of the Kremstal.
Because there, in the terroir of the single vineyard „Kremser Sandgrube“, single vineyard „Kremser Weinzierlberg“, single vineyard „Kremser Gebling“, single vineyard „Kremser Thurnerberg“ & single vineyard „Kremser Goldberg“, lies the strength of the winery Zöhrer.
The vines were largely plantet by grandfather & father 40-80 years ago. The focus is on the sorts „Grüner Veltliner“ and „Riesling“.
The profile of the wine is unmistakable, they are very indicative of the terroir and take pleasure to international esteem.
