The “Sip Some Austria” tour continues as Jessica Altieri, CEO and host of Wine Channel TV, visits with Winery Lenz Moser in Austria. Lenz Moser is considered an ambassador of Austrian Wine Culture, as Austria’s wines are characterized by a lovable freshness and intensive fruit notes. The Lenz Moser Winery has been dedicated to the preservation of Austrian wine culture dating back to official Lenz Moser estate documents written as early as the year 1040.
Today Lenz Moser presides as the market leader for Austrian quality wines in the domestic market, working with 3,000 winegrowers from Lower Austria and Burgenland. In addition, Lenz Moser contributes to exporting Austria’s wine culture into many countries of Europe, the USA, Canada and beyond. The winery produces traditional varieties of Grüner Veltliner, Weißburgunder, Blauer Zweigelt, and Blaufränkisch. In addition, Lenz Moser produces Welschriesling, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Blauburgunder, Blauer Portugieser, and St. Laurent. The Lenz Moser winery promotes sustainable practices in wine cultivation: “the environment, the economy and society all have equal rights and guarantee a successful, positive development for us and our field… The truth in wine is the winemaker’s love of nature, of the care of the grapevines, of the attentiveness in the pressing, of the honesty in the winery and of the authenticity of the product.” The Lenz Moser “high culture” method is now used in 90-percent of Austria’s vineyards, and the method enjoys popularity in many wine-growing areas both in Europe and overseas.
