About HERRENHOF LAMPRECHT

Styria, Austria

My name ist Gottfried Lamprecht. I am the head behind “Herrenhof Lamprecht”. The estate belonged to a monastery many decades ago. My aim is to recultivate this perfect slope for wine growing. Lucky me, I could start this from zero (there was no vine anymore!) in the year 2006. Now I can call myself a proud natural working winemaker. I never worked in a different way. Never!

The main thing I always wanted is to “put” this place, where I grew up – the Herrenhof, the slope, just everything, into a bottle of wine. Isn’t that a great idea, that a vine can reflect a specific terroir at its best and for many, many years? I really love this idea!
