Ferdinand Mayr


The story of a wine lover and his road to fulfilling a dream!


“Authenticity combined with quality is a matter that is near and dear to me.” – FERDINAND MAYR



Alongside his teaching responsibilities at the Austrian Wine Academy another dream of FERDINAND MAYR came to fruition in 2009, when he started producing his own wines in Austria.

In the early 90s FERDINAND MAYR  graduated from the Bruckner Conservatory of Linz with a degree in Music. He taught music between 1990 and 2002

He turned his career in 1994 when he was Denoted as Austria’s top wine expert
In 1997 FERDINAND MAYR graduated with title of Wine Academic (WSET diploma)
He was an educator for Austrian Wine Academy
In 2008 was selected as „Lecturer of the Year“ by the Austrian Wine Academy
Starting with 2009  FERDINAND MAYR gets involved in production of Austrian wines.



All single vineyards are situated in the northern Krems Valley.

Lovers of wine from around the world know that a premier wine requires time in the cellar and in the bottle.

This process should not be rushed. Thus, going forward FERDINAND MAYR explains how he will keep his signature wines in used oak barrels for a minimum of two years.

On sadly note, this means that there will be no chance for him to submit the wines in time for the tasting deadlines at the major wine magazines.

FERDINAND MAYR believes in making high-end, cellarable wines, produced with time for slow development on the fine lees.



Come from an area north of the city of Krems on the Danube, from the outstanding vineyards around the town of Senftenberg.


There – in three single vineyards with old vines – FERDINAND MAYR harvests the grapes to produce a small volume of boutique Grüner Veltliner and Riesling Krems Valley under the name „KAISERWETTER“.

Vineyard Pellingen – Grüner Veltliner

Vineyard Timmelstein – Riesling

Vineyard Ebritzstein – Riesling


In addition he produces a range of classic easy drinking wines with a strong individual character. Grüner Veltliner, Zweigelt and Blaufränkisch.

These wines bear the name “NA ALSDANN” from the old Austrian expression used to describe something that’s turned out—perhaps unexpectedly—quite well.


We gladly recommend FERDINAND MAYR wines – they have a unique taste and you will be amazed by their quality and details.
