Steiermark / Styria, Austria

Walter Frauwallner sums up his wines’ signature as “Lots of wine in the glass, the terroir clearly recognizable and always a pleasure to drink”. Declared Austria’s “Wine Talent of the Year” by Gault Millau after only his fifth vintage, the formula is clearly working.

A third-generation winegrower, Walter took over the family’s mixed agricultural farm and few hectares of vineyards at age 21. Making the decision to commit the future direction to winemaking, he and his wife Petra shifted their attention to expanding their vineyards, developing a state-of-the art winery, and establishing a tasting room and farm shop.

Anchored around the famous Ried Buch vineyard – the one that produced the 2006 Morillon (Chardonnay) that first brought him fame – Walter and Petra now manage 24 hectares of vineyard in Styria’s basalt-rich Vulkanland region, near Straden. 100% of their wine grapes come from their own vineyards, which are hand-tended, hand-selected, and hand-harvested.

A winegrower first, Walter espouses the belief that quality grows in the vineyard and seeks to bring forth the character of the terroir as the grapes progress to the bottle. That said, each varietal is vinified in its own way, resulting in wines of unique character.

A member of the influential association of Styrian winemakers STK, Weingut Frauwallner has continued to create national and international award-winning wines that represent the best of the region and has now been recognized three times as the “Winery of the Year in Styria”.
