The Eschenhof Holzer winery is located in Großriedenthal, in the Wagram wine region. On the ~19 hectare estate, the innovative winemaker, Arnold Holzer, draws on the unique bounty of nature, with a great deal of creativity, a distinctive style and a sense for delicious creations. The loess in this region creates the natural conditions for the rich wine. The soil drifted here in multiple layers during the last ice age, about 100,000 to 10,000 years ago and covered the sub soil with marine deposits. Due to the valuable mineral composition, the loess soil creates a balanced depository of nutrients.
Thanks to it’s small granules and high capillary, the loess soil is able to preserve a lot of water for drying times. The wines that thrive in the loess region are distinguished by a particularly characterful, long lasting and delicate fruit.
