Our Wines. Your Enjoyment.

Red Wines

Peak season for wine growing in Burgenland is between September and October – depending on the weather during the whole year.
Red wine is made out of black grapes. After the vintage the stems of the grapes are removed and the grapes are carefully pressed. Out of that, the so-called mash – a mixture of fruit pulp, juice, skin and nuclei – emerges. The mash is then filled into copper tanks, where the fermentation process begins after the addition of yeast.
 
During fermentation dyestuffs and tannins are extracted from the grape skin. As opposed to the common opinion the dyestuff of grapes isn’t located in the fruit pulp, but in their skins. Due to that fact the skins are very valuable for vine-growers. After fermentation the mash is pressed out and the young wine is ready for degustation.

To get a mature red wine out of this fruity, young wine a period of rest is needed. Depending on type, maturity level, origin and vintage the duration of said period can vary greatly. During this period the young wine is resting and expanding its bouquet. Ingredients and flavours merge into a harmonic cooperation. Especially in this phase the vine-growers instinctive feeling is needed because this is when the distinctive nature of the red wine is generated
 
From the grape through to the fermentation our red wines are attended by affection and accuracy. Our assortment exists of 11 red wine types reaching from “Pinot Noir” and “Blaufränkisch” over “Merlot” and “Zweigelt” up to “Syrah”.

White Wines

The production process of white wine is similar to that of the red wine. The most important difference lies in the fact, that the grapes are fermented together with the skin for red wines, whereas on the other hand, only the liquid of the grapes is needed for the vinification. The reason for that is that the dyestuffs are located in the skins of the grapes. For white wines it is therefore necessary to ferment the liquid without the skin to receive its typical colouring.
Our white wines convince with their pure colouring and spring like freshness. Our white wine range contains different types as “Welschriesling”, “Chardonnay” and “Sauvignon blanc”.

Bright, yellow-green in color, gentle aroma of elder and luscious with fresh taste and a fantastic citrus finish.
