There’s a buzz about this guy — an Austrian winemaker named Peter Veyder-Malberg. And the buzz is saying, “Get these wines now. If you can find them.”

It started echoing across the country from the dining rooms of fancy New York restaurants. It got to me even faster via my Austrian friends, both winemakers and importers. The winemakers are buzzed up about Peter because he makes the kind of wines they like to drink — and would like to make, if only they could. Super precise, super mineral, and painstakingly hand-crafted. Restaurant sommeliers are stoked about Peter’s wines because of their drinkability as well as their ageability — the qualities Peter strives for in every large and small vineyard and cellar decision he makes.

What makes Peter’s wines among Austria’s new ne plus ultra? He has the passion, the willingness and the skill to work with old vine vineyard sites that are just too gnarly, just too challenging, just too fraught with peril for lesser winemakers. His devotion to these vineyard sites yields a set of completely terroir-driven wines, as individualistic and as defined as they come.
