Ewald comes from a family that has a very large organic winery that is successful all over the world. Ewald's dad was given the opportunity to start a new project at the 1200 year old Schloss Maissau in 2006. This has since become a passion project for the family, turning around the rustic abandoned vineyard surrounding the castle. The castle's caretaker was happy to hand over the vines to the Grubers to farm and to make wine. They nursed the land back to health and are just one vintage from being able to label the wine as organic. The two vineyards are 100% Grüner Veltliner and total a whopping 5 acres.
Philosophy: Coming from a family that believes in organic farming, Ewald of course continued the tradition here. He was able to get the vineyard certified organic and his wine is the first certified organic Grüner Veltliner from the area. He and his family are very proud!
