“This wine has everything, except salability. It isn’t the cheapest and it isn’t the biggest; it’s just delicious, useful and charming. Right, I know: poo on that. We don’t “drink” wine, and if we do we certainly don’t waste any mental bandwidth on how delightful or delicious it might be. That is for nimrods. We appraise our wines; it’s a kind of blood sport, we judge and evaluate and we especially pay terribly close attention to how the wine makes us look; will our industry pals respect us? Does our wine have a big enough dick? Is it enough for a wine to be unique and wonderful? Doubtful. Is the sweet-natured moderation of a wine like this something we might respond to? Nah, it isn’t noisy enough. Do the aromas and flavors of boxwood, basmati and chervil have any chance of breaking through? You must be joking. Are we at risk of perverting the very reasons we ever got into wine at all? Yes, we are.” – Terry Theise Our village, Hohenwarth, derives its name from Hohe Warte - high observation point - and refers to our fortified Romanesque church, which was built in the 11th century at 400 metres above sea level. As all of the neighbouring regions like Kamptal and Wagram are at a significantly lower sea level, Hohenwart\'s vineyards enjoy an exceptional microclimate.
