Siegmund sells his organic wine
The "Schlossweingut Stachlburg" is Sigmund Kripps' fruit growing and wine estate and quite a special business at that. The village castle was built as a seat of local government back in the 13th century and is quite typical for the Tyrol region. In 1549, Georg Stachl bought the estate. Following his ennoblement as a "von Stachlburg" he gave his name to the castle.
Since 1945, the estate has been in the Baron von Kripp family. Sigmund took over from his father in 1990. He planted the first vineyard and eight years later he converted the entire estate over to organics. Sigmund has completed a viticultural apprenticeship, done a winemaking course and he attended Geisenheim technical university. With all this under his belt, he is well equipped to manage and farm the estate successfully.
He is assisted by three regular employees. Wine tastings, wine events and concerts all bring people to the estate and they are cordially invited to do what Sigmund does: get to grips with the nature of nature.
