Faber-Köchl

Strong women, strong wines - mother and daughter live this motto at the Faber-Köchl winery in the Weinviertel region of Eibesthal. Anna was eight years old when Maria founded the business in 1999 as a lateral entrant with one hectare of vineyard. In the meantime, daughter Anna cultivates an area of land more than eight times as large. After completing practicals in Germany and New Zealand, the studied oenologist replaced her mother as head of cellars and vineyards in 2015. In 2019 she was awarded the VINEUS Award as Austria's Newcomer Winemaker of the Year.

Region

The largest wine-growing region in the country covers an impressive 13.858 hectares or one-third of Austria's viticultural area. Known as "Veltlinerland," it is also home to half of the Grüner Veltliner plantings.
The Weinviertel stretches from Vienna to the state border of the Czech Republic in the north and Slovakia in the east. The enormous area indicates an abundance of wine styles, but the speciality is called Grüner Veltliner. The distinctive "peppery" aroma earned it Austria's first controlled designation of origin - Weinviertel DAC - in 2002. Formerly known as a supplier of basic wines for sparkling wine production, the Weinviertel now appears in a qualitatively new and exciting light.

Climate & Terroir

In the Weinviertel, humid and mild Atlantic climate and continental-Pannonian meet. There are many Terroir sub-zones here: in the north-western Weinviertel, the town of Retz is known as one of the driest places in Austria and thus suitable for red wine production. In the northeast, Grüner Veltliner and Rieslings are particularly elegant, and in the south of the region, conditions are ideal for lush Veltliners and Burgundy varieties. Loess, loam, marl, sand and lime are the predominant soil types in the region.

Wine

"A wine should taste like where it comes from" - Maria.
Mother and daughter have made it their business to produce high quality, sustainable and powerful wines. Every glass should speak of the essence of the Weinviertel. The spicy Grüner Veltliner, Traminer, Burgundy varieties and light red wines are at home at the Faber-Köchl winery.
