Meet the Rabl Family Winery: Purveyors of Austrian Gruner Veltliner

Weingut Rabl is based in Lagenlois, Austria. It’s a family-run winery headed up by winemaker Rudolf Rabl Jnr since he took it over from his father in 1986. According to Rudolf, the name Rabl “stands for wine pleasure of the highest standard.”

Today Rabl is one of Austria’s largest wineries, sourcing wine from over 75 hectares of vineyard. However, no matter how large the winery’s grown, Rudolf hasn’t forgotten that the best wines are about the harmony of the vines and their surroundings, emphasising terroir, the climate and its unique location.

In the winery’s cellars, Rudolf focuses on “spontaneous” fermentation and long must contact. This helps preserve the aromas of his wines. In the last decade, Weingut Rabl has enjoyed many awards both regionally and on the international stage.

You can find his beautiful, dry Gruner Veltliners on our wine list's Austria section.
