|The Lagler family has lived on this beautiful estate at Rote Torgasse since 1789. Yet, it was only in the late 1970s that the Laglers decided to go from grape-growing to winemaking. Instead of selling his grapes, Karl Lagler began producing first class, fruit-driven wines. His vineyards are found at top locations in Spitz like Steinborz, Tausendeimerberg, and Burgberg, where old vines combine with natural farming techniques and other quality-oriented measures to yield excellent results. All work is done by hand, including harvest. Today, the Lagler family is known as one of the most charismatic families in the Wachau, and their wines command respect among top restaurants worldwide. These wines represent the true character of the western area of the Wachau. The winery is centered around its 180 year -old cellar which is accompanied by a small hotel, a great starting point for wine travel in the Wachau.
