Pure white limescale from the “Leitha” regions is lined up here on the Leithaberg next to brown shiny brown slate –
these are the “gems” that provide MAD wines with the best ingredients for outstanding mineral wines.
The fine tuning of variety, soil and exposure enables
perfectly ripened grapes to grow.
Natural cultivation, taking into account vintage, weather and vineyard
weather and the needs of the vines are a matter of course.
The best vineyards in the region, above all the Marienthal vineyard, are a part of the important MAD family heritage. They are nurtured, cared for
and protected. They are the reason why and upon which
great wines have been created for generations.
