The respected co-op of Erste + Neue was created in 1986 upon the merger of two historic wineries. 2016 brought even more growth to the project, when Kaltern winery joined in the fun. Today there are about 470 hectares of land spread between its 650 members, most owning and tending less than 1 hectare each, which ensures that while the co-op grows, the personal, family touch is not lost.
