Nikolaihof, the oldest wine estate in Austria, and perhaps even Central Europe, has a history dating back 2,000 years to Roman times.

Today, Nikolaihof's production history under its current owners traces back to 1894 when the Saahs family brought the Wachau property. But to truly understand Nikolaihof, one needs to go back to 1971, when Christine Saahs discovered Biodynamics after being given a book written on the topic by Rudof Steiner.  Fascinated, she began applying its precepts to all aspects of her life and her wine estate, making Nikolaihof the world's first Demeter-certified Biodynamic wine grower in 1998.

Tasting Notes: Light, fresh Gruner Veltliner of greenish yellow colour. Typical varietal aroma, delicate peppery notes, dry, fruity, light. Slight apple aroma, with a hint of piquancy.

Wine Pairing: Hors d’oeuvre, cured ham, cpoultry, vegetables, fish, white meat, light cheese.
