'In 1996, wine lover and former Alpine hotelier Michael Moosbrugger took over from the Monastery of Zwettl the huge acreage, cellar and palatial headquarters of Schloss Gobelsburg. After several years of tutelage and collaboration with his friend and new neighbor Willi Brundlmayer, Moosbrugger and his wines quickly emerged to stardom of their own. Few wine growers I know are more thoughtful and articulate or bring to bear on their work a wider cultural perspective than does Moosbrugger, who while establishing a highly distinctive approach not just with Riesling and Gruner Veltliner but also with Pinot Noir, St. Laurent and Zweigelt has also explored the historical roots of Gobelsburg wine under his ecclesiastical predecessors, replicating them with memorable 'Tradition' bottlings of Riesling and Gruner Veltliner featuring crushing, minimal settling, skin contact, and 20 months of elevage.'
