Sohm & Kracher Gruner Veltliner
The idea to create this wine materialized in 2008, over a casual lunch with Gerard Kracher in a Thai restaurant in Queens, New York City. With our individual knowledge and passion it was a natural progression for us to combine our expertise. We decided on Grüner Veltliner because we had never worked with it and it was an opportunity to work with one of our favorite grape varieties.
We are very honored that the 2009 Sohm & Kracher Niederosterreich Grüner Veltliner was ranked in the Top 100 wines of Wine + Spirits Magazine 2012. During our second vintage (2010) we were excited to add a second label, Vineyards of Lower Austria (100% Grüner Veltliner), which was made from vines aging 20-40 years on unique limestone subsoils. It fermented and aged only in stainless steel for eight months.
