Wines by Rating

We personally taste and rate all our wines using the 20 point system and publish the rating here. Unfortunately we don′t have too many tasting notes translated yet but if so, you′ll also find the taster′s initials at the bottom: GB - Gerhard Biber, AB - Alexander Biber, CB - Christoph Biber.

Furthermore we have included the ratings of a few well-renowned wine experts and magazines with our wines for a differentiated picture. Click on a wine expert below to browse to the wines rated by her/him.
The gourmet magazine A La Carte also issues a wine guide for Austria with rather strict ratings.
