The Turk family roots go back to the beginning of the 18th century; in 1836 Turk forefathers acquired today´s winery location. Generation upon generation, it has since been expanded. The winery is located in the Krems valley (Kremstal) a wine region in lower Austria. In 1995, Weingut Turk acquired the winery from his parents and has since carried on their traditions. To this day, he and his parents work together in the winery. Weingut Turk and his wife hope that one of their four children will continue this tradition(Alexander 11,Caroline 9, Manuel 7, Magdalena 2). Currently, the children like to help with routine production such as harvesting, filling bottles, and driving the forklift. In 2000 Weingut Turk took over a traditional winery in Krems with one of the best vineyards. At that time he tasted the winery’s old vintages of Gruner Veltliner back to the year 1946, and was really surprised! The vintages of 1947,1949, and 1959 were outstanding. They had a beautiful nose, good length, and were really fresh. It was incredible how old they were! The winemaker at that time produced these fantastic wines showed great vinification. This interested Turk and prompted him to research their winemaking process and that´s the way they do it now. Of course that´s their secret! The end result of tradition and handcrafted art are wines unique and full of life.
