Respect is a central concept at the Loimer winery. Not only in relation to nature and wine but also in our interactions with one another. Together with his wife, Birgit, Fred manages the operation that now consists of a whole team of employees – all united by a passion for viticulture. Together, part of one system, and as dynamic and interconnected as the ecosystem in Loimer’s vineyards. And all with one goal: to produce wines full of character; wines that are a joy to drink from the first sip to the last.
Since 2013, Fred Loimer has been producing sparkling wines in addition to his internationally renowned Rieslings, Grüner Veltlinern and Pinot Noirs. They account for around 15 percent of total production and are sold in 22 of its 55 export countries worldwide, and the trend is rising. The convinced biodynamicist cultivates a total of 85 hectares of vineyards in his home Langenlois in the Kamptal and in Gumpoldskirchen – in the climatically and geologically completely different eastern slopes of the Vienna Woods.
As a founding member of the biodynamic winemaking group respekt-BIODYN, Fred Loimer has been biodynamically certified since 2006.
