VDP: What is so special about your winery?

Rebecca Crusius: Our winery combines many special features. Our family manages a unique vineyard portfolio, which is crowned by the VDP.GROSSE LAGE® BASTEI. The estate building was constructed in 1888. We vinify our wines as gently as possible in our vaulted cellar. Family Crusius has a long tradition and experience; we have been growing wine since the year 1576 and are now in the 14th generation of wine cultivation.

VDP: What is your winery philosophy?

Dr. Peter Crusius: Year after year, we pursue the goal of producing inspiring wines that express their origins.


VDP: For what wine style do you strive?

Rebecca Crusius: Our winery is known for elegant, delineated Rieslings.

VDP: Which of your wines would you recommend to someone who doesn’t yet know your winery – as an entry-level wine, so to speak?

Dr. Peter Crusius: Our VDP.ORTSWEIN Traisen Riesling “vom Fels” is a superb Riesling that combines the spiciness of porphyry with beautiful fruit.

“OUR BASTEI RIESLING GG GAINS ITS UNIQUE SPICE AND LENGTH FROM THE SPECTACULAR LOCATION AT THE FOOT OF THE ROTENFELS.”

VDP:  Of which wine are you particularly proud?

Rebecca Crusius: Of our BASTEI Riesling GG. The wine gains its unique spice and length from its spectacular location at the foot of the Rotenfels.


VDP: Why did you become a vintner?

Dr. Peter Crusius: Because as a winemaker you learn a real handcraft, you can live out your creativity and every day brings variety.

VDP: Do you have role models, mentors?

Rebecca Crusius: In our family business, it has always been and still is important that the previous generation passes on its knowledge to the next generation.


VDP: What are your next goals?

Dr. Peter Crusius: Of course, it is important for us to constantly improve the quality of our wines; we also want to promote the international reputation of German wines.


VDP: How do you combine tradition and innovation?

Dr. Peter Crusius: In our case, we achieve the combination of tradition and modernity with several generations working together in one company. This ensures a constant exchange of ideas and experience. A particularly beautiful tradition is the regular filling of our traditional oak barrels.


VDP: Why should people visit your winery?

Rebecca Crusius: Besides tasting the wines in our winery, it is worth visiting the VDP.GROSSE LAGE® BASTEI in Traisen. Here you can walk along the highest steep cliff face of Germany north of the Alps and enjoy a marvellous panoramic view of the surrounding region.
