Weingut HuglWimmer is a family-run winery in Ketzelsdorf-Poysdorf, Austria. Owners Sylvia (née Wimmer) and Martin Hugl both grew up in family wineries, and in 2006, they combined their winemaking knowledge and agricultural educations to introduce their first vintage. In 2013, they combined their two estates to form Weingut HuglWimmer. Martin handles winemaking and quality control, while Sylvia is responsible for estate management, tastings, marketing and accounting.
Martin & Sylvia’s 30 hectares (74.13 acres) of vineyards are located within a 2 km radius around the town of Poysdorf on prime south- and south-west-facing hillsides. While vineyards are planted close to each other, the soils range from light and sandy to medium loam to deep-seated loess and loam. This soil diversity and favorable growing conditions help produce a broad range of grape varietals.
Weingut HuglWimmer produces several white wines, but the focus is on high quality Grüner Veltliner, the most widely planted white grape in Austria. Their key red wine is Zweigelt, which is aged in large oak casks, and they also produce a Zweigelt Rosé. Kysela Pere et Fils, LTD. markets their wines under two labels, Hugl & Wimmer.
