Bio-Weingut Geyerhof is a family owned winery that has been in Ilsa Maier’s family since the 16th century. The 37- acre estate is located in the Krems Valley of Lower Austria near the Danube River, which provides ideal growing conditions for Riesling, Gruner Veltliner and Zweigelt. The estate vineyards grow on different soils; prehistoric stone, sandy soils and gravel soils and are located in some of the best sites in the region. In 1986, Ilse took over Geyerhof and two years later, she and her husband Josef converted to the estate to organic. The vineyards are dry farmed and all the fruit is handharvested. In the winery, the grapes are fermented using natural yeasts. Lees contact, neutral barrel aging and malolactic fermentation are carefully utilized to add complexity to the wines. Ilse Maier is a founding member of the Association of Female Wine Makers of Austria.
