Vielfältig. Verbunden

durch eine Handschrift.

Long tradition, briefly explained: Malat stands for a very diverse assortment of wines, distinguished according to the appellation in the Danube region.

Region: The Kremstal accommodates the tension between cooler air masses from the north and warmer climatic influences from the east. Significant temperature differences between day and night favour the emergence of a special diversity and intensity of aromas and flavours in the grapes.


Village: Furth is situated at the foot of the Göttweiger Berg, on the southern side of the Danube river. The village wines reflect character of place – many different soil types within a very small area. For us, this is the basis for the varietal character to shine in the spotlight.


Vineyards: the smallest unit of a wine’s origin, the vineyard in which the vines grow. Noteworthy: the vineyard names are usually a reflection of the names of their special soil features.  For example, Silberbichl (or “Silver Hill“) is named for the mountain with a silvery shimmer in the evening sun because of its plentiful mica schist terroir. The result: a fine, precise wine – almost like silver.


Centuries of knowledge have been passed down. Malat cultivates vineyards that have been known and documented for almost 1,000 years, including four Erste Lagen (the best single vineyards) with the special 1ÖTW designation; this is awarded only for the highest quality standards and a holistic approach, which includes, among other things, regulated maximum yields, hand harvesting and exclusively natural musts.

All criteria for the Erste Lagen 1ÖTW are found on the pages of the Österreichischen Traditionsweingüter
