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.

How to add love to your cooking

Recipies with local herbs & flowers

Treat and take care of yourself – this is the motto of Christine Saahs, doyenne at the Nikolaihof in Wachau (Lower Austria), Austria’s oldest winery with a long history dating back almost 2000 years.

Saahs puts a lot of love and knowledge into bringing together recipies that refresh and quicken both body and mind: Medical plants growing in the forest, in the grass or even on our windowsill, find their way into the cooking pot just as fresh, local fruits and vegetables, and sometimes – in moderate amounts – a piece of meat. Beauty doesn’t fall short either: Easy-to-make creams and oils, crafted by means of well-tried Demeter guidelines, help to enhance our skin and hair.

In this pleasurable day-to-day cookbook for body, mind and soul, Christine Saahs unites practical tips and tricks on how to keep or regain our health, use our food efficiently and protect our soil for a healthy future worth living!
