Winemaking Notes: Kellerweingarten is the term for Cellar Vineyard. The vineyard is located just above Barbara's wine cellar at the foot of the Seeberg site. It is a single site Grüner Veltliner that includes both estate and purchased fruit. The wine was originally designed to pour by the glass at her family’s tavern and is raised entirely in steel.

Tasting Notes: Kellerweingarten shows typical Grüner Veltliner notes of pear, quince, and pepper spice. There is structure and grip on the palate. The body is loaded with mouth-watering acidity.

    Offers nectarine flavors, accented by verbena and white pepper notes, presented on an elegant, balanced profile. Not a big wine, but very expressive, refreshing and sensuous, teasing you back fro more. Drink now through 2025. 330 cases made, 40 cases imported.
