About Weingut KRUG

The Krugs have been cultivating wines in Gumpoldskirchen since 1746. In 1998 the wine cellar was relocated and a modern, functional winery operation erected amidst the vineyards. Today, we cultivate 35 hectares of the best locations in the thermal spring region, and are committed to natural grape cultivation. We place great emphasis on diligent care of the vineyards, as well as on the strict selection of healthy, ripe grapes. For ageing the wines we employ a kind of treasure vault that only very few wine estates worldwide afford: Wines from the best vintages.

The thermal spring region as a vein of gold

Already the ancient Romans recognised the advantages of the thermal spring region. Even today, „Austria’s Burgundy“ with its climatically favourable conditions along the thermal fault line is considered a true gold vein. The weather conditions and the loamy and limestone soils offer ideal prerequisites for vibrant, multi-faceted white and red wines such as Rotgipfler and Zierfandler, which are typical for the region, but also for red wines with a long ageing and storage potential. At the same time we make sure that the wines also promise great drinking enjoyment while they are still young.

Natural production

Gustav Krug’s life is characterised by a pioneering spirit. The harmony of tradition and innovation is the recurring theme in our actions. Going along with nature as well as ageing in high-tech stainless steel containers, or producing vegan organic orange wine, are all a part of it. KRUG is committed to natural grape cultivation. Because the goal is to produce exclusively quality wines. And where you put something good in, you get something good back out. In keeping with this motto, for us only the best is good enough.

The story behind the label.

The picture of a pair of lovers has become KRUG’s emblem in recent years. It shows Psyche and Cupid. The god of love was commissioned by his mother Venus, who was jealous of the beautiful mortal Psyche, to pair Psyche off with the ugliest man.
However, Cupid grew weak at the sight of her and made her his own lover.

To escape detection, their amorous play could only take place in the dark. But Psyche was bursting with curiosity. In the glow of an oil lamp she recognised her lover, and the affair became known. After some turmoil came the happy ending: Jupiter let Psyche drink ambrosia, the drink of the gods, which makes one immortal, and in this way elevated her to divinity.
