I am the youngest family member of the winery Nikolaihof Wachau, Austrias oldest vinery with almost 2,000 years of history. Today we are still using the basements, built by romans to store our wine. After the Romans Nikolaihof has been a monastery for almost 1.000 years. Back in 1894 the owner family Saahs was able to acquire the estate and cultivates the vineyards eversince.
For almost 50 years, Nikolaihof has followed the anthroposophic philosophy of Rudolf Steiner, and was one of the first wineries worldwide to adopt the practice. Today Nikolaihof is internationally known for white, mature, high-quality wines. In 2005 the oldest son Niklaus took the over the vinery and pursues the bio-dynamic way of agriculture.
