Schloss Gobelsburg, wine producer in the Kamptal region of Eastern Austria, is celebrating its 850th anniversary this year. They track their history as a wine producing estate back to 1171. The castle still belongs to the Cistercian monks of nearby Zwettl, though Michael Moosbrugger has overseen the estate since 1996, and presided over a period of dramatic success, making this now one of the most iconic estates of Austria.
Seven times Schloss Gobelsburg has featured in Wine and Spirits Magazine “Top 100 Wineries” as well as innumerable other international and Austrian awards for both the winery and its wines.
Join Michael in the St. James’s Room to present a range of recent, and not so recent vintages, on 19th October.
In addition to his great single vineyard Riesling and Gruner Veltliner from the best terroirs of the regions: (Lamm for GV and Heiligenstein for Riesling) we will also drink the Jubilee Cuvée, released this year. It has just won 99 points from Stuart Piggott, writing for James Suckling, and must be on the shortlist for the year’s most unusual wine: a varietal and vintage blend of 30 different vintages, taking us back as far as 1971. Michael has blended this to mark this landmark in the history of this great estate, and we are delighted to offer our Members the opportunity to toast to it’s individualism.
