Franz Hirtzberger

Wachau, Austria | website

Considered one of the top producers in Austria's Wachau, Hirtzberger's small productions of excellent wines are known equally for their aging potential and their intense style. Situated in a 600 year old house at the base of the famed Singerriedl vineyard in the village of Spitz, near the western part of the region, Franz Hirtzberger is a master of balancing the full properties of the ripe fruit with the nuances of the terroir. Since he inherited the estate from his father in 1983, he has closely managed his vineyards, and uses only natural yeasts to produce Federspiel and Smaragd Gruner Veltliners and Rieslings.
