Meet the Maker: Simon Gattinger, Weingut Simon Gattinger

Leading the new generation in the Wachau. 

...and the results are stunning. 

Your friendly neighbourhood wine raconteur chats with Simon in the bustling Beadles of Borough Market, talking all things Wachau, wine and hidden talents! 

Inspired by the rich winemaking heritage ingrained in his family, Simon Gattinger knew from a very young age that he wanted to produce his own wine one day. After dedicating himself entirely to wine in his studies in Klosterneuburg and training in Germany, American, Switzerland and Austria, Simon produced his first vintage in 2017, revitalising his family’s business and resuming in-house vinification under the Gattinger name.

With a “less is more” philosophy and a deep respect for nature, Simon skilfully harnesses the unique climate richly influenced by the Danube and exceptional soils of the Wachau to produce incredibly clear, expressive wines that authentically reflect the terroir. Through his unwavering dedication to crafting wines of the utmost quality, it is clear why the young talented winemaker is regarded as one of the most promising newcomers and rising stars in the Wachau.
