The genealogy of the Hoch family can be traced back to the year 1640: the wine labels depict the original coat of arms. The Hoch family has resided in Hollenburg on the Danube River ever since. The Danube and nature in general have always been the determining factors for the family: in their main occupation as regulators of ship navigation and as winegrowers. The Hochs employ the knowledge acquired through centuries to produce vibrant wines of great finesse.
Christoph Hoch took responsibility for the winery in 2013 and is supported by his family. He has chosen a new and uncompromising path in which he seeks to express the uniqueness of the Hollenburg community. He has studied the terroir of his habitat systematically and compared them to other wine growing regions, in particular the unique geological formation “Hollenburger conglomerate”. It is his aim to create exceptional Grüner Veltliner and Riesling with the unique stamp of Hollenburg. To achieve this he employs among others the traditional methods of his ancestors in winegrowing and winemaking. Conversion to biodynamic cultivation and DEMETER certification was the logical next step in Hoch’s commitment to long-term sustainability.
His stated goal is, “to produce inimitable wines with superb ageing potential; wines that aren’t just ‘good’, but rather wines that inspire emotion!”
