Bright, pretty and full of life, the wines of Ingrid Groiss are as at home in our portfolio as she is in Breitenwaida.
AboutIngrid Groiss is back where she belongs, in the small village of Breitenwaida, where her young self gambolled among the vines while her family made wine for their own Heuriger (tavern). The exciting steps towards quality in the Weinviertel helped persuade her to make a life of her love. She enrolled in Viticulture, Oenology and Wine Marketing at the University of Vienna and during those studies gained experience with producers such as Domäne Wachau, Birgit Braunstein and Birgit Eichinger.
At home, she had to play second fiddle to her chief winemaker dad until in 2010 she went head-to-head with her in a blind taste-off of their own wines, with the victor being handed the winemaker's reins. Needless to say Ingrid came out on top, and her parents are delighted to see her flourish.
