Some of the best things are from the most unexpected scenarios. When these two friends, who definitely came from very different backgrounds (one a winemaker, and one financial hot-shot), decided to partner up and take on a business together, it proved to be a masterstroke. Hellenthal Kellerei has been a fiercely impressive winery ever since (and quickly became one of our very favourites). The greatest friendships face whatever situations present themselves. This Grüner, is an incredibly partnered wine that is the physical embodiment of Hellenthal Kellerei itself. A versatile, adaptable, and perfectly balanced mouthful. Tell us that doesn’t cuvée your enthusiasm!
Hellenthal Kellerei is owned by two friends from two different walks of life. Manfred is one of the most renowned and successful winemakers in the Weinviertel region, who knows this region like the back of his hand. Whereas Walther, gave up his financial job in the city to manage the family estate's finances. Walther fell in love with the vast and quiet Weinviertel and so he and his family have moved back there. A winemaker who knows the terroir of the Retzerland and knows how to handle the Veltliner. A financial expert who takes care of it's future, but is too, a lover of wine. With this team, not much can go wrong.
