Josef and Ulli have been running the family winery together since the 1980s. Josef takes care of the vineyards and the cellar with passion and closeness to nature while Ulli, with her calm manner, cares for the well-being of the employees and the whole family.


The two daughters Julia, the cool head, and Anna-Maria, the creative, are already working together in the winery. Julia keeps order, ensures that appointments are kept and finds her balance in the vineyards. Anna-Maria always brings new ideas to the winery, which are then realized together.


Cohesion and tackling things together are very important in the family, and the joy in the matter must never be neglected.

As a father, you suddenly think in other dimensions. Not just the quick success, but whether I will give my children vineyards that are full of life.
Josef Grillmaier


For us, winemaking means maintaining the local wine culture - and has done so for over 100 years. We understand that as our mission for the future. With respect and responsibility. In addition to the tradition that has been passed on for generations, it is now our goal to develop through modernity and innovation. Today we cultivate around 27 hectares of vineyards in and around Langenlois. The great connection to nature also plays a major role in the Grillmaier family - for our environment and for future generations.



Our company has been working organically for several years. Environmentally and resource-friendly - in conscious use of our natural foundations of life. For us, the targeted use of biological agents, herbs and essences is part of maintaining the diversity of life in our vineyards. Not only animals feel good on healthy, lively soils, but also vital vines. Because we live from nature, we live with nature.

Our vineyards are located in some of the sunniest places in and around Langenlois. The wines get their characteristics from loam and loess soils, as well as primary rock soils. The result of work of a winemaker year only becomes apparent at harvest. In autumn we harvest our grapes carefully by hand.




Spiegel, a south-facing location at about 250 meters above sea level, is located in front of the city of Langenlois from the Danube. Here you can find a mighty loess layer (up to 40 meters), which is sandy and light on the surface. Thanks to the deep soils, the vines can root very deeply here and survive long dry spells unscathed. Depending on the soil type, particularly concentrated and multi-layered Grüner Veltliner Kamptal DAC thrive here.

  • Variety: Grüner Veltliner



The topsoil consists of a very small layer (up to 40 centimeters) made of loamy to sandy clay in combination with gneiss and mica slate. Due to the volcanic incisions, relatively many loose stones are brought up to the surface. On the one hand, this results in difficult tillage, on the other hand, the high proportion of stones enables daily solar energy to be stored and released into the night. This leads to a particularly uniform maturation and expression of the terroir-dominated aroma, but the wines appear light-footed and playful.

  • Variety: Grüner Veltliner




In the west of Langenlois, the slopes become steeper and the floors more rocky. Steinmassl, at about 300 meters above sea level, lies on one of these slopes facing south-east and is thus protected from cool winds from the west and north. The subsoil is made of gneiss with slightly weathered, silvery glittering mica. The brown earth is interspersed with an above-average number of stones, which make work in the vineyard more difficult. The loose rock also has advantages - it is an excellent heat accumulator and continues its heat radiating effect even after sunset.

  • Variety: Riesling



The Schenkenbichl site has a continuous, deep soil profile with rare browned black earth. This allows the vines to take deep roots and absorb the nutrients and minerals from a wide variety of soil layers. The airy southern exposure favours the passage of warm, western winds. The grapes can hang here in a completely healthy state until late autumn in order to achieve the appropriate natural concentration. Accordingly, Veltliner vines produce wines of special density, thickness and expressiveness every year.

  • Varieties: Grüner Veltliner, Pinot Blanc, Riesling, Zweigelt




With a “summit” of 345 m above sea level one of the highest vineyards in the Kamp Valley. From the top you look into a wide cauldron that opens to the southeast into the Langenlois Basin and protects the vineyards from the winds from the Waldviertel. The soils are deep, very chalky and consist of loamy-sandy silt, which is formed from the widespread and multi-level loess. 

  • Variety: Pinot Blanc



The Käferberg site is located on the upper end of an east-facing hillside, about 300 meters above sea level in the north of Langenlois. Loess soil predominates in the middle of the hill. Different floor cover layers alternate here. In addition to slightly sandy zones, there are heavy clay soils, in between you will always find gneiss. Käferberg has its own, cooler microclimate, which, in addition to the different soils, is what makes the location so special. This climate makes it possible for the grapes to hang on the vine until they have reached physiological maturity. As a result, they store a lot of minerals and develop into finesse-rich and elegant wines.

  • Variety: Chardonnay



The Kamptal stands for Grüner Veltliner and Riesling, for

Bedrock and gravel, for loam and loess,

for terraces and lots of sun.


The climate in Kamptal - the valley along the Kamp river - is known for many hours of sunshine and warm winds from the Pannonian basin and the cold from the Waldviertel. We owe the acidity and the distinctive aroma in our wines to the many hours of sunshine during day and the cold at night. Dry, fresh as well as juicy, aged wines find their origin here.


From a geological point of view, the Kamp Valley is a mosaic made of rocks that are centuries old. Typical for the Kamptal region are the two grape varieties Grüner Veltliner and Riesling, which are classified as Kamptal DAC. In the style of the internationally relevant stystems of appellation, Kamptal DAC is focussed on a three-tier system of origins, divided into region, village and vineyard. 

  • Region wines: light, easy-drinking Grüner Veltliner and Riesling, which represent the Kamptal valley

  • Village wines: nuanced and well-structered wines

  • Single vineyard wines: diverse Grüner Veltliner and Riesling, which express the different locations of the vineyard and their characteristics
