Gernot and Victoria Schreiner are a magnetic couple who have pursued their own singular way in wine since taking over the family’s 6 hectare estate in their hometown of Rust. Their adherence to organic practice far exceeds the requirements for certification, extending as it does to everything that they utilise in their vineyards and winery, including what they eat and what they pack with. It is a truly holistic and entirely sincere approach to life that one has to respect. But when one considers the quality of the wines that they make, one is awestruck by the magnitude of their achievement. These are people of the highest quality whose nature is reflected in the authenticity and limpidity of their wines. It is frankly astonishing that their wines have not been discovered before in America.

Property History:

2007 taken over by Gernot and Victoria from Gernot's uncle, Johannes Schreiner. Until then 100% ex cellar sales to private consumers in combination with a bike rental in the house. Until the 1980s, the winery was traditionally run as a mixed agricultural estate (viticulture, pigs, cattle, chickens) by the grandparents of Gernot, Edith and Alfred Schreiner. In 2007, Gernot's vineyards, which he had already planted or cultivated in the 1990s in addition to his main occupation at a winery in Rust, were merged with the vineyards of Gernot's uncle Johannes. The entire vineyard area was immediately managed organically and applied for certification after the 2007 harvest. From the vintage 2012 on the wines have been certified organic. In the 10 years of management by Gernot and Victoria, the ex cellar sales have diminished and merely make up a small part of the total wine sales. During this time, not only were the vineyards converted, but also was the 400-year-old town house in the middle of Rust's old town, owned by Schreiner family for about 100 years, was gradually and authentically renovated and revitalised. In 2018 the Schreiners took an important step in their vineyards: they selected and planted a Blaufränkisch-PIWI variety explicitly for vinification.

Owner History:

Gernot actually moved in from a different career. He graduated in computer science and tried his hand at studying computer science for a short time. The turn to viticulture took place promptly. He worked for about 15 years in a renowned winery in Rust, with which Hennry made his first but all the more succinct statement in the red wine sector in 2001 and finally started building an organic winery together with Victoria in 2007, both following their dream. Victoria is also switched her career, she originally studied social work. Through her love for Gernot, her love for wine has grew. Today she is a strong voice for planting resp. preservation of hedges, also a passionate ornithologist and responsible for the creative side and the customer contact of the winery.
