Crystal clear white wines from the Kremstal, since 1792.

Since 1792 SALOMON UNDHOF produce white wines from the best terraced sites along the Danube. Crystal clear wines with fine minerality. They combine elegance and finesse with expression and longevity. SALOMON UNDHOF is one of the oldest privately owned wineries of Austria. The style of Salomon Undhof wines is an alliance between character, balance and harmony. Wines meant to be drunk young are fresh and subtle; wines for keeping acquire with age a luscious complexity. The wines of SALOMON UNDHOF are found on the finest tables all over the world. The winery is situated in the eastern part of the “cultural world heritage site Wachau" with the appellation Kremstal DAC. SALOMON UNDHOF is founding member of the association Traditionsweingueter Oesterreich.

The Salomon family

Today Bert and Fanny Marie Salomon are representing the ninth generation of the Salomon wine-making dynasty. Bert is responsible for the vinification of the wines while Fanny Marie is in charge of sales and marketing.
Their parents Bertold and Gertrud Salomon now have more time to concentrate on their winery Salomon Estate in Finniss River - Australia, which was founded by them in the mid-1990s.

Great wines can only come from great sites with healthy soil. Therefore, the soil in which the vines root is our most cherished treasure and it is our duty to care for, protect and to preserve it in order to pass it on safely to the following generations. This includes planting cover crops to promote biodiversity and improve soil health, ban the use of herbicides and last but not least picking the grapes by hand. In the end only healthy soil can nourish healthy vines that produce grapes that reflect the terroir in which they grow. The result are wines that unmistakably express their place of origin.

Before 1972, the Undhof was the farm of the neighboring Capuchin monastery Und. This is where the name of the winery comes from. Monastery And in Latin it means “Claustrum ad Undam”, translated it means monastery on the wave. “Wave” refers to the Danube, which still has a significant influence on the wine-growing climate in the Kremstal. This photo is from 1931, then as now the whole family helped with the careful harvest of the grapes by hand.

In the early 1930s, it was Fritz Salomon (1905-1971) - father of Bertold Salomon, grandfather of Fanny Marie and Bert Salomon - who was the first winery owner in Austria to bottle his wine exclusively at the winery. Fritz Salomon is considered THE pioneer of natural white wines. The first Salomon Undhof wines were exported to the USA in the late 1930s.

In 1971 Dkfm. Erich Salomon (1943) took over the winery after his father's sudden death and continued the natural, dry winemaking style with the aim of underlining the delicate fruit and elegance that the Wachau terroir should show more clearly than human influence.

Today's winery is located in Stein a.d. Danube, on the western edge of the city of Krems a.d. Danube, in the Kremstal wine-growing region. A total of 25 hectares of vineyards are cultivated. The vineyards are planted with the grape varieties Riesling (50%), Grüner Veltliner (47%) and Gelber Traminer (3%). In this photo you can see harvest workers again in the famous Grüner Veltliner vineyard “Wieden”.
