The Schödl winery is run by three siblings Mathias, Viktoria, and Leonhard. Located in the Weinviertel region in Austria, the winery is best known for its biodynamic farming of Grüner Veltliner, while also cultivating Riesling, Burgunder, and Roter Muskateller. The siblings are committed to promoting biodiversity in the vineyard—wild herbs, grasses, and chamomile grow between the vines, which serve as living space for the many beneficial insects.
The Schödl family built their farm at the end of World War II and used it as a mixed agriculture and wine operation. It was not until the 1980’s that Hubert Schödl, a winemaking professor, transformed the farm fully into a vineyard. In 2012, the three Schödl siblings took over the winemaking operation from their father, Hubert Schödl, and began transforming the vineyard, emphasizing organic practices and sustainable wine production.
