VINEYARD SINCE 1912
ERICH & WALTER POLZ

Hochgrassnitzberg

Hochgrassnitzberg is the best grand cru on our estate. The special feature of this location is the shell limestone (residue of an old reef), on which the vines stand – this combined with the special microclimate give the wines their unmistakeably elegant character.
