We have several examples of the famous Austrian white variety Grüner Veltliner, but nobody, and we mean nobody, does it like the terrific farmers and lovely humans, the Schödl family. Their version, farmed in the very agricultural region the Weinviertel, is light, fuzzy, serene, also weirdly full of energy as well — it's a yellow Gatorade without the horrible sugar crash; it's dozens of crushed-up white Pez candies floating in your favorite white tea. It's hard to describe, but it simply must be drunk. We'll refund your money if the bottle's not gone within the hour of its being opened.

Schödl Family


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.
