This is one of the oldest documented sites in the Kamptal, dating back to 1074. Michael Moosbrugger has been at the helm of the viticulture and enology here since 1996, and studied extensively under Willi Brundlmayer. Michael believes that the character in his wine is best expressed by the least intervention, and it’s a breath of fresh air when many others fall into the same formula of squeaky clean, ‘international’ styled, boring wines. This Riesling is so aromatic, drawing you in with nectarine, key lime, and honeysuckle, hints of rain drenched rock linger on the sides of the palate and the salinity on the tart ending begs for another sip. Serve with poached wild salmon and pea tendrils with crème fraiche parsnip puree.

The history of this estate goes back centuries, beginning in 1171 when the monks of the Zwettl monastery are granted their first vineyards at Heiligenstein and Gasiberg near the castle. Jumping to 1740, the monks acquired both the castle and its vineyards. A fire at the winery in Kammern required that winemaking be transferred to Gobelsburg. Currently, Michael and Eva Moosbrugger manage the property along with Willi and Edwige Brundlmayer - essentially some of the biggest names in quality Austrian winemaking. All single vineyard wines and the most precious special wines carry the Schloss Gobelsburg label.
