Volker Donabaum, the founder of Volker Wines, has been in the wine industry practically since birth. He grew up on the Donabaum family estate in the Wachau in Austria, where the family has been making wine since 1833. Volker worked several harvests in Austria before working as an assistant winemaker in California, France, Italy, New Zealand, Australia, Oregon and Canada. In 2012, Volker moved to New York City, where he imported and distributed wines from around the world. In 2018, at the encouragement of his favorite Texan, Volker moved to Houston. Unable to kick the winemaking habit, he enlists the help of some friends back home to create this classic grüner. The pandemic prevented him from traveling home to make the wine last year, so this is his wine in name only. Young vines, managed organically, all near the town of Deutschkreutz, and fashioned into a surprisingly expressive, generous wine. We love gruner with fresh spring asparagus, pea greens, garlic scapes... the greenest things you can find.
