The Allram estate is situated in the heart of the wine growing area Kamptal in the picturesque location, Straß im Straßertale. The winery belongs to growers who have succeeded in establishing themselves at the top of Austrian viniculture through decades of consistently high quality work. In 1992, Michaela Haas-Allram took over her parents’ business and ever since has operated the winery together with her husband, Erich Haas. A modern basement facility over three floors, with perfectly succeeded integration of the old wooden barrel cellar and the traditional wine press house, as tasting and showroom creates a perfect balance between tradition and tomorrow. Michaela and Erich are particularly proud of their facility at Zöbinger Heiligenstein which was re-cultivated with great of sensitivity after thirty years of neglect, including preservation of the original old stone terraces.
The love and passion of wine growers for their job enables the production of marvellous tight wines with distinctive varietal character. Grüner Veltliner Gaisberg, Riesling Heiligenstein, Grauburgunder and Chardonnay are internationally renowned and admired – not least because of the committed merchandising of the skilled economist Michaela. Yearly national and international awards have been bestowed upon the wine growers for their excellent work.
Wine Philosophy of Allram
Our philosophy is reflected by the characteristics of our wines. Our overall mission is the production of organic, high quality products by combining the knowledge of generations and using state-of-the-art technology. Therefore we need to give the utmost care to each vine. In the cellar we take a back seat and merely act as a gentle facilitator. What we seek is to craft wines that reflect a particular vintage, the terroir and the special microclimate of the Kamptal - to ensure that the subtle nuances of each single vi neyard can be expressed and savoured in their multi-layered uniqueness. This is driven from a responsibility not only towards our family, but also towards nature, our history and the wine itself. The quality of our vineyards and vines are our core strength and this is supplemented by a deep understanding, born out of tradition, intuition and an open approach towards the world we live in.
