Christoph Hoch

Christoph Hoch’s vineyards are situated in Hollenburg, just south of the Danube river in the Kremstal region. The winemaking legacy of the Hoch family can be traced all the way back to 1640.

In 2013 Christoph took over the family winery to continue this long tradition and make wines that express the unique terroir of the Hollenburg, which sits on calcareous and gravel conglomerate soils. The 5 hectares of vines are planted to a variety of different exposures, and are protected from the winds by the surrounding woodland areas. The winery has been organic since 2012 and started its conversion to biodynamic farming in 2013. 

Christoph Hoch pursues one goal: the authentic expression of his homeland in his wines. The foundation for this is the rich experience and tradition of his family, which he deeply respects. 

The vineyards of Hollenburg are dominated by conglomerate rock. This is solidified river sediment stemming from the Limestone Alps that were drained by the ancient Traisen River. This soil is comprised of cobbles and pebbles of various sizes that are held together by calcium carbonate. The soils are correspondingly calcareous and alkaline (pH 7.5).

The climatic conditions of the Hollenburg vineyards are unique. The vineyards are situated at altitudes between 210 and 350 metres above sea level (50 – 200 meters above the Danube River) and are shielded from the west through wooded hills and the Dunkelstein Forest. Atlantic air masses mix with a warm Pannonian climate, which is further influenced by the valleys of the Danube and Traisen Rivers. The average annual temperature is 9.4° C (49° F). The average annual precipitation is 520 l/m2
