Pichler is a wine producer based in the Unesco World Heritage Site of Wachau, Austria. It specialzes in producing a range of complex, intensely flavored wines wines from Grüner Veltliner, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc. The estate vineyards are located on steep stone terraces, predominantly located on the southern side of the Danube river. There is a total of 20 hectares (49 acres) of vineyards planted to Grüner Veltliner, Riesling and small amounts of Sauvignon Blanc and Gelber Muskateller. These vineyards are steeped in history – the Loibner Burgstall vineyard appears in documents dating back as early as 1248. F.X. Pichler was established in 1898 in Dürnstein and in 1976, the estate passed to Franz Xaver (F.X.) Pichler. The winery created its eye-catching Unendlich Riesling in 1998, and features a star-studded blue label inspired by Karl Friedrich Schinkel's stage setting for Mozart's The Magic Flute opera. The label was specially designed in order to reflect the meaning of the word \"unendlich\", which translates as never-ending. The modern cellars were built in 2009, and were designed to reflect the historic 12th and 13th Century steep stone terraces typical of Wachau.\u003cbr\u003e","published_at":"2023-01-10T14:08:00-05:00","created_at":"2023-01-04T12:34:03-05:00","vendor":"CaskCartel.com","type":"Wine","tags":["Country_Austria","LK0401","Other_Wine","Producer_Pichler","Region_Wachau","Source_Bestofwines1222","Type_White Wine","Varietal_Gruner Veltliner"],"price":39999,"price_min":39999,"price_max":39999,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":42663875379338,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":false,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"2018 | Pichler | Gruner Veltliner M.
