Vorspannhof Mayr

  • “Located in Dross at the northeastern edge of the Kremstal and just west of the Kamptal, the Vorspannhof has long enjoyed a fine reputation, but I had not visited there since 2006, the year in which proprietor/winemaker Silke Mayr began a collaboration with Walter Buchegger, whose family holdings are in Gedersdorf east of Krems.... Buchegger is currently taking the leading role in both vineyards and cellars, freeing Mayr to spend more time raising their young children. The soils here are divided among loess, conglomerate and gravel, and some of what gets referred to as “brown earth, in other words,” explains Buchegger, “where traditionally there was grain growing, not vines.”
