Vína DAC - our winemakers
Family winery, specializing mainly on wine tourism, growns and produces wine for five generations on 20 hectares of vineyards, about 8 km south of Retz. They are situated in an ideal location - precipitation up to 350 mm / m2 per year, loess and clay soils give the best conditions to produce balanced wines. Their production is currently 50% white and 50% red species.
This winery has a tradition since 1739 (!); produces quality wines from which 80% are exported to Germany, its specialty is the premium wine Grüner Veltliner 48 NORD, which is grown in the vineyard with a very mineral soil at precisely 48 degrees of north latitude. Their motto speaks for all: "With the best raw materials, experienced hand work and long tradition, we aim to produce the best quality. We define innovation not as a threat but as an opportunity to search for the highest taste experiences."
A small family winery concentrates for generations on only a few species. The vineyards are situated on calcareous loess soils. The philosophy of this winery is a minimalist principle, because "only through simplicity may arise complexity." All wines, however, are of high-quality and completely correspond to the typical characteristics of the variety. Open the catalog of wines and try any wine from this winery – and you will see that any wine from this winery is a definitive reference for the certain breed comparing with others. It's no wonder, Mr. Johannes Pfeffer motto is "authenticity in terms of origin and vintage are my biggest concern."
This family winery run by Mr. and Mrs. Wimmer was founded in 1665 (!), and they are the tenth generation that continues in the family tradition. Their vineyards are spread over 12 ha on the sunny hills to the east from the village Frauendorf an der Schmida. This position gives the white wines a distinctive fruitiness, while red wines are very subtle but yet still of full character.
The winery has been known since 1648 for the farming at vineyards on the slopes of the Leitha Mountains. His philosophy is the production of wines with an unmistakable character for a given variety year after year. It uses the different soil nature and microclimate of the Leitha Mountains, allowing the growth of white, red and sweet wines in high quality. The emphasis here is, as in the whole region, on red wines. They are processed and manufactured in several quality - and price - ranges, exactly according to the customer 's needs.
And the motto of this winery? "The production of wine on the Leitha Mountain is our philosophy and livelihood for generations!"
Knowledge of wine production has been passed on to this winery from generation to generation since the 17th century. The three centuries of tradition of wine production are reflected in the high quality and the best harmony of these wines. The quality of vineyards farming, as well as the correct date of the harvest, the subsequent processing of wine juice, the production of wine in both stainless steel tanks and traditional barrels, a careful selection of bottles and their subsequent storage – this all guarantee the exceptional quality of the wines from this winery.
In the heart of the idyllic region of Kamptal lies the traditional winegrowing town of Langenlois, where there are also vineyards of this winery. The enthusiasm of the winemaker Rudolf Sax and his passionate efforts for the best quality of his wine is impressive. All production is harvested exclusively by hand. The harvest of predominantly white varieties is further fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Since 1999 the method of extra fine and gentle pressing of grapes has been used. As a result of this all are stable, rich and fragrant wines.
The vineyards of this family winery are located near the town of Oggau, near Lake Neusiedlersee. This region was created perhaps just because of good wine. Lots of sun, low hills, enough rain (but not too much), the ideal climatic regulator called Neusiedlersee and various kinds of soil. An impressive offer of red wines typical for Burgenland is complemented by several exceptionally well-groomed white varieties.
Winery focused on the production and sale of light, drinkable, very affordable and quality wines. The winery has - like Fegerl - its about 30 ha of vineyards around the village of Deizendorf. Obviously, the wines are very successful here. The winery also benefits from an extensive and often open wine tavern - the Heurige, from where there are beautiful views of the surrounding countryside and vineyards. And what does Florian Dworzak (a graduate of the State Institute for Viticulture and Fruit Growing in Klosterneuburg) say about his own winery, a man who has everything here, including the whole family, on command? "In our wine cellar we can feel the spirit of tradition and courage to innovate, but without artificial interventions. As in nature and in the cellar, respect for wine as a natural product is the first priority. We process, fill and sell our own grapes. "
This winery from Burgenland manages its vineyards around the wine-growing village of Halbturn, east of Lake Neusiedlersee, a short walk from the Hungarian border. The wine production emphasizes the high share of manual work both in the vineyard and in the processing of grapes, and secondly in the combination of modern technologies with traditional methods. The training of wines on oak and acacia barrels also plays an irreplaceable role in the production of red wines. The result is amazing, in the case of white lively and juicy, in red varieties turn fragrant and soft wines for more than competitive prices.
