The Producer

Weingut Gross

THE GROSS WINERY IS LOCATED ON THE RATSCHER NUSSBERG, WHICH IS AMONG SÜDSTEIERMARK’S MOST CELEBRATED VITICULTURAL SITES. THE WINES OF THE FAMILY ARE AMONG THE BEST IN THE REGION, YEAR AFTER YEAR.

The Gross family has been growing wine since 1907. Today, Martina and Johannes Gross pursue their craft in the charming hillscape of Südsteiermark and adjacent Štajerska Slovenija. Their reputed sites (or Rieden), such as Nussberg, Perz or Sulz, are characterised by extreme slopes. The vineyards are cultivated in a sustainable and quality-assuring approach, the use of machinery being hardly possible. In this area, the cool winds from the Alps meet with the warm air masses of the Adriatic Sea. The grapes become fully ripe in this Alpine-Mediterranean climate, and due to diurnal temperature variations of up to 20°C, they possess both freshness and aroma. The soils are highly diverse: depending on the vineyard site, sand and gravel, shell limestone, marl, or soils of Volcanic origin mark the unmistakeable character of the wines.
