Nikolaihof Wachau

2,000 years of living history and tradition

With almost 2,000 years of history, Nikolaihof is the oldest winery in Austria and one of the first in the world to have begun working by biodynamic principles according to the regulations of the Demeter Association. No herbicides, fertilisers, pesticides, or synthetic sprays are used in the vineyards. The grapes are harvested by hand, fermented without artificial yeast and stored in big, oald Austrian oak casks up to 20 years.

The organic certified Wine Tavern offers guests a traditional and festive range of rooms, as well as an enchanting atmosphere in the courtyard under the linden tree. Nikolaihof is also the perfect venue for a splendid celebration. Its festive rooms offer a wonderful ambience for weddings, baptisms, birthdays and company parties.

We are delighted to offer tours through our historical estate during the opening hours of our Wine Tavern.
