Carrying on his family’s winemaking tradition, Fred Loimer studied oenology at Austria’s Klosterneuburg University before gaining valuable work experience in Nahe, Germany, and the Napa Valley. He took over the winery from his father in 1997, purchasing a 19th century vaulted brick cellar, and renovating it into an avant garde architectural black box for his operations. Unlike most of his peers, Fred vinifies his wine to dryness, focusing on full maturity of the grapes, and not on sugar. His fresh modernity and relationship with the land has resulted in pure, focused wines.
The Loimer estate vineyards lie around Langenlois in the cool climate, sunny Kamptal region, northwest of Vienna. Divided into 100 parcels, planted on seven different soil types, and with a range of altitudes, their 80 hectares of vineyard provide fantastic opportunities for complexed and characterful wines. Fred’s conversion to biodynamic viticulture began in 2006, and all his estate wines today carry the official Respekt certific
