ANNO DI FONDAZIONE
Aldo Sohm and Gerhard Kracher have been close friends for over a decade. They first met in New York in 2004.
Aldo Sohm left his home in Tyrol in alpine Austria and moved to New York to further his career as a sommelier.
Today, he is head sommelier in Le Bernardin restaurant, one of the most critically acclaimed and best known restaurants of the East Coast of the United States.
Numerous top awards, as Best Sommelier in America and the most prestigious title of Best Sommelier in the World, are credits to his achievements.
Gerhard Kracher was, at the same time, the right hand to the late Alois Kracher and was managing the important American market.
When Gerhard met Aldo, they both got on with each other right away and they shared a passion for the great wines of the world and great dining!
The idea to produce a wine together – under the name of Sohm & Kracher – began in 2009.
Both Gerhard and Aldo cherish indigenous grape varieties and they have a soft spot for Grüner Veltliner.
The origin of the grapes for the wine is Weinviertel, where old vines are found growing on unique soil formations.
