The origin of the name Gottschelle cannot be clearly determined, but it is assumed that it comes from the Alpine regions, where ‘Goetschen’ describes the pointed protrusion of a mountain crest. (Documentation: 1341, ‘Gotschalich’, from the book about the market-town Furth, near Göttweig, by Franz Resch, Furth 1985).
Gravel and weathered sediments form a base supporting massive loess formations, which provide highly favourable conditions for optimal development of the Veltliner. The vines here are between 15 and 35 years old, and yield concentrated wines with excellent potential for cellaring. The Grüner Veltliner ‘Gottschelle’ is a regionally typical wine with remarkable character.
