Dorli Muhr’s dream can be expressed in numbers: it measures exactly eleven hectares and is located on Spitzerberg, a good sixty kilometers east of Vienna. Strictly speaking, it is actually not a real mountain, but rather a hill with a wide ridge. In the eyes of the winegrower, however, it conceals a treasure: vines nestled against the gently sloping slope, some aged 50 years and over. Vines cultivated for many generations, mainly by families from the region. A good hundred years ago, the mountain was considered one of the best vineyards in Austria, until it was long forgotten.
