Weingut Norbert Bauer consists of 90 ha of sustainably farmed vineyards in the picturesque Pulkautual area of the Weinvertel, near the river Pulkau, very close to the Czech border. Their motto is “Tradition in progress—we are where the wine grows.” The winery has existed since 1721 and is currently owned by Norbert & Gisela Bauer. They are the 11th generation of the Bauer family to operate it and the lineage continues with their five children. Nature remains one of the most important foundations of the family winery. They recently obtained an Austrian certification for sustainability that mandates organic practices in the vineyard, as well as sustainable practices for the entire business, including CO2 emissions for the winery. It is a respect for nature every step in the production process. The old wine cellar on the property is still used, and the knowledge of their ancestors is kept alive like a treasure. The design is inspired by the 80’s, an era where Apple computers were the boxes everyone was talking about and Kraftwerk’s Computer Love album debuted. So please, raise your glass and Schplink!
