The Steinmassl is positioned just above the Steinhaus on a south/southeast-facing slope in western Langenlois.
Waldviertel gneiss with high iron content forms the solid basis for wines with minerality full of character. Given the loose texture of the brown soil on top of it, the vines can develop deep roots and fully exploit the terroir’s potential. The orientation of the slope protects the vineyard and its occupants against cold north winds. Jerusalem artichokes, buckwheat, coneflowers and broom flourish along with birthwort. Together these different plants create an attractive biotope for Roman snails and butterflies – especially for southern festoons.
