The Producer

Lenz Moser

The origins of the Lenz Moser success story date back to 1849. After multiple changes of ownership, the cellar was finally incorporated into the properties of the Lenz Moser lineage in 1849. Winegrower Anton Moser acquired the wine cellar and 10 plots (1.4 ha) of vineyards from Melk Abbey.

The name Lenz Moser is inextricably linked with Austrian viticulture. The current estate cellar in Rohrendorf bei Krems, first mentioned in written records as early as 1040, is considered the starting point of the momentum behind the fostering of Austrian wine culture. The Lenz Moser winery has been working to promote that culture since 1849. This led to the founding of “Lenz Moser high culture”, which revolutionised viticulture in the 1950s. That and other pioneering achievements made the Lenz Moser brand what it is today: the market leader in the Austrian quality wine market. And as a major exporter of bottled Austrian quality wine, Lenz Moser is introducing Austrian wine culture to many countries around the world.

Prof. Lenz Moser III. (1905 – 1987), who is regarded as an innovator of viniculture and the founder of the “Lenz Moser high culture” vine-training system, helped to write a part of wine history.

In 1928, he carried out his first attempts at high culture at his father’s (Laurenz Moser II.) operation in Rohrendorf. After taking over the business in 1929, he founded the wine-growing school of Lenz Moser and in 1935 began to plant out large areas of vineyard using this new style of vine training. The greater growing space for the vine – 3 to 4 square metres – and the trunk height of 1.2 to 1.4 metres not only guarantee better light exposure and ventilation of the vines, but also offer economic advantages thanks to the possibility of mechanising the vineyard work and carrying out quality-focused cultivation. Today, the Lenz Moser high culture style is used on 90% of Austria’s vineyards as well as in many wine-growing areas across Europe and overseas.
