Producer Profile

Gross

For over a century, the Gross family has been dedicated to the art of winemaking, cultivating vineyards since 1907. Today, Martina and Johannes Gross continue this rich tradition amidst the picturesque landscape of Südsteiermark and Štajerska Slovenija. Their renowned vineyard sites, including Nussberg, Perz, and Sulz, boast steep slopes that pose challenges for conventional machinery, necessitating a sustainable and meticulous approach to cultivation. Here, the convergence of cool Alpine winds and warm Adriatic air creates an optimal climate for grape ripening, resulting in wines that balance freshness and aroma. The diverse soils, ranging from sand and gravel to shell limestone and volcanic origins, imprint a distinctive character on varietals such as Pinot Blanc.
