Stagård wines, Austria

The old cellar has been standing for almost a millennium!

The yard for harvesting has been there since 1424. Benedictine monks planted vines and grew apricots there.

Then in 1786, Urban's family took over the farm and have been making wine there ever since. 

But whence the name Stagård?

In 1981, Kenneth Stagård traveled to Austria from Sweden and married into the family.

He and his wife, Elisabeth, started the Swedish branch of this estate and renamed it Lesehof Stagård.

Kenneth’s son, Urban, and Urban’s wife, Dominique, took over in 2006, making them the tenth generation to run the estate. They immediately began the crucial transition to organic viticulture, with certification gained in 2009 and in 2020 were certified as biodynamic.

The wines are made with minimum winery intervention and rest for far longer than normal on their lees, gently extracting more quality from the grapes, giving greater structure and texture to the resultant wines.

Their goal of making bold, exciting and authentic wines, simultaneously expressing evolution and tradition, has been fully realised and we are very excited to have two of them for you. And while some wines will appear to be more fun and others more serious, they are always authentic and always engaging.

I must say the wine list here is amazing. Top quality and what I like the most is a rich info on every presented bottle. Pure example when someone puts their heart and knowledge into it. I had a few Burgundy ones and they were delicious! Superb packaging and delivery as well.
My first purchase with Allotment and it was a really positive experience - from their website, product range , price range and professional follow up.

I stumbled across this wine merchant while searching online for a particular Spanish wine. I'm glad I did as I discovered an excellent selection of wines from that country, as well as from other regions, all at competitive prices. Excellent personal service and prompt delivery made for a great overall experience. Highly recommended

The owner Chris provides an incredible customer experience. After I had ordered online, he contacted me separately to offer additional insights into all the wines I had chosen and to give me a voucher for next time.
