The visitors’ tour starts in the vineyards. There, in the shadow of an original „Hiata-Hütte“ (watchman’s hut), the visitor enjoys a delicious sip of Grüner Veltliner of the vineyard Sandgrube. In between the vines one catches a glimpse of the baroque monastery Göttweig while the guide informs the guests of the importance of winegrowing in Krems for more than 2000 years.
In the room of wine regions an air photograph of Krems and its environs invites to a walking-tour through the vineyards in a few steps. The winegrowers’ gala forms the heart of the room because the winegrowers are the heart of WINZER KREMS. They foster and cultivate the vines for WINZER KREMS all year long and harvest in autumn in large part by hand – because the experienced winegrower’s hands know when a grape is mature to be harvested.
The oak cask cellar conveys sacral impression. A wine altar forms the centre of the cellar. There, the next glass of wine with a fine fruity Blauer Zweigelt is waiting for the visitor. Karl Korab, a painter of the local region Weinviertel, designed the western wall of the cellar with an 8x2 m oil painting called “winegrowers’ vintage idyll”. Three large windows admit a glance at the impressive fermentation and storage cellar of Winzer Krems.
Wine is universal. It fits to many dishes, in all parts of the world. At the same time, however, it cannot be confined to traditional rules. It wants to be explored and wants to explore.
