Markus Huber began his journey in viticulture and vinification at a young age. After vocational training in Austria and two harvests in South Africa, he committed himself to converting his parents' 4-hectare wine-producing business into a full winery. Year after year, his aim is to vinify excellent wines from the best possible grape material. He sees himself as a companion guiding the grapes towards their desired style, adapting as needed.
Mostly south-facing, these vineyards are located in the Traisental and Kremstal Valley in Niederösterreich Lower Austria, in the northeast of the country.

“I am deeply convinced that really good wine is made from grapes which a winegrower leads to perfect maturity. This means to me to understand every single lot as an independent individual with its own demands.”
Growing Grüner Veltliner
The loess soils in the region hold water and nutrients, which is ideal for Grüner Veltliner. Cool winds from the nearby Alps meet with the warm air currents from the Danube Valley. This can lead to extreme differences in the day and night temperatures which are ideal for the development of the aromas in the grapes. The climate and unique calcareous soils in this region are perfect for the production of bright, pale coloured, aromatic wines which are full of character.
On partnering with Canned Wine Co.
“Canned wine will have its share in the future. Alternative packaging of wine is required. For many occasions, cans are, also environmentally, a great thing!”
