Weingut Buchegger

The story began way back in 1893, and the Buchegger family has devoted itself diligently to wine growing ever since then. Of course, wine and the vine have a much longer tradition in Gedersdorf – first mentioned in an official document in 1190 – where most of the vineyards of the Buchegger estate are growing. At that time, the local monasteries owned vineyards and harvested the best grapes from parcels in the Holzgasse or Moosburgerin, which 800 years ago bore the same names as they do today
Walter Buchegger also grew up in Gedersdorf. He learned how to vinify wine at an early age from his father Leopold, who had begun bottling wine he had produced himself in 1965. In 1994, Walter Buchegger took over his father’s enterprise and established his respectful, gentle way of vinification, working with grapes from some of the best vineyard sites in the Kremstal.
Since Walter Buchegger’s sudden death in June 2018, his life partner Silke Mayr, who has been involved in all facets of the operation for years, has continued the business with her well-trained team, headed by cellarmaster Michael Nastl.
