Roter Veltliner is an old indigenous varietal. At full ripeness it has red skin, though it's a white wine grape. It was on the verge of extinction, but has always been cultivated at Mantlerhof. This terraces at this single vineyard site face SSE.
100% Roter Veltliner. Founded in the 12th century as Lesehof, the Mantlerhof estate is located in a historic manor, where for 200 years it has been managed by the Mantler family. First documented in 1365, the family was first noted when Simon Mentler and his wife bought Elsbet, a vineyard near Krems. Sepp Mantler started working around the family winery in the late 60s and took over farming and winemaking from his father Josef in the late 70s.
