The Malat family wine estate looks back at almost 300 years of fine winemaking and ten generations of vintners. Weingut Malat received the prestigious Award Best European Riesling 2016 for their Riesling Silberbichl 2010, a fitting testimony for centuries of quality winemaking. The Malat wine estate sits in the valley of Kremstal in Lower Austria, just an hour outside of Vienna. The area features ideal conditions for viticulture due to the mild climate and the Danube flowing through, providing a cooling effect in summer and a warming effect in winter. The remarkably different soil properties such as loess, gravel and primary rock allow for a large diversity of varieties to grow extremely well here.
