Weingut Markus Huber

About

The Huber family has wine growing roots dating back more than 220 years. Today the winery in Reichersdorf is in its 10th generation, run by Markus Huber. In 2000 Markus took over four hectares from his father which, up to that point, had been farmed to produce the wines served in his family restaurant. Absolute focus on the strengths of the region and the unique soil types that are found there ensure that the wines display unmistakable clarity and fruit styles.
