The Prackwieser family has owned the Gump Hof for more than 200 years. The building itself, however, goes as far back as 1546. Markus discovered his passion for wine in the mid-90s and took over the family heirloom from his father in the year 2000.
The Gump Hof stands out for its open and experimental approach to wine and is also characterised by the exchange of best practice among other wine-grower friends, without forgetting specialist trips to the wine-growing regions par excellence: the Wachau valley, the Burgundy region, and the Loire valley (which also included a poignant visit to the cemetery where the unforgettable Didier Daguenau rests).
The wine reflects the character of the terroir as well as that of the wine-growers thanks to the knowledge passed down from one generation to the next, personal experience, time, patience, and the constant endeavour of improving one’s taste.
