The foundations of the house can be traced back to 1683 and it has been owned by the family since 1781. In 1970, professor Walter von Hoesslin was hired as architect with the task to redesign the building. Gerti Huber is in charge of the interior design and she pays much attention to detail. The small alleyway next to the building is called “Fuhrgassl”, and that is where the name of what once used to be known as “Huber” is derived from.
Tradition & dynamism
The root of good wines
- Good wines are the result of the right terroir and tried and tested know-how as well as creative oenological visions. Such a solid root system is the ideal basis for any further refinement.
- Ernst Huber laid the vineyard’s traditional foundations, and along with his wife Gerti he overhauled the concept of the Viennese “Heurigen” in the 1970s: With its manifold premises and the impressive garden, the ‘Fuhrgassl-Huber’ soon became a brand name for typical Viennese conviviality – as autochthonous as the Viennese wine itself.
- The family’s commitment to viniculture is kept with competence and enthusiasm up by grandson Thomas Huber. He won gold in the ‘Kräftiger Gemischter Satz category in 2011 and thus laid the foundations for the winery’s future path: The vinification of regionally typical wines with high qualitative aspirations, while never losing sight of the required balance between nature and modern technology.
