Interview of Mr. Florian Rieder – Winery owner
Question 1: Do you already export to Asia? If yes, where? If no, what type of importers & distributors are you looking for in Asia?
We currently only sell our wines in Austria and Germany. However, I think it’s time to expand. Our winery consists of a young, motivated team who are always looking for new opportunities and challenges. The potential and motivation is great, so we are looking for importers who also have big plans. With our new modern winery, built in 2008, we can produce larger quantities with high quality.
Question 2: What is the most unique and qualitative part of your products, different from competitors?
What is unique about our products is that the family is there to help with every move. Be it in the vineyard, winery or bottling. Everywhere attention is paid to the highest quality, which is reflected in the wines. Our young team keeps coming up with new ideas so that we can work more sustainably and efficiently.
Question 3: When did you start to export your brand worldwide, and what is your development plan for the next years?
I took over the winery from my father in 2019, which was the starting signal for the marketing of our wines worldwide. My thought is the Asian region has a lot of potential and is more open to young new winegrowers from Austria. This year, of course, I would like to start exporting to Asia and expand more and more over the next few years. It would be my dream, in a few years, to give many people around the world a nice, enjoyable moment with my wines
