Vine growing

The 7.5 hectares of vineyards are planted with typical Austrian varieties as well as with international varieties.

The white wine varieties are:

  • Welschriesling (Olasz riesling, Taljanska grasevina, Biela sladka, Riesling Italico),
  • Rheinriesling (Gentil Aromatique, Petracine, Riesling Renano Bianco, Reno, White Riesling, Johannisberg),
  • Chardonnay (Auxerrois),
  • Sauvignon Blanc (Blanc Fumé, Fumé, Sauvignon Jaune, Gros Sauvignon, Msukatni Silvanec),
  • Muskat Ottonel (Muskataly, Muscadel Ottonel) and
  • Gewürztraminer (Savagnin Rose, Fromenteau Rouge, Gentil Rose Aromatique, Teremo Aromatico, Livora cervena, Crevena Ruziva, Mala Dinka).

Our red wine varieties are:

  • Blaufränkisch (Lemberger, Kekfrankos, Frankonia),
  • Zweigelt (Rotburger),
  • Merlot,
  • Syrah (Shiraz, Hermitage, Serine) und
  • Cabernet Sauvignon (Bidure, Marchoupet, Petite Vidure, Burdeos Tinto)

Parts of the vineyards are used for newly-cultured fungi tolerant species, which were created by our former colleague Ing. Georg Weiß. Depending on the ability of the variety the grapes were used for micro vinification or as table grapes.

In cooperation with the association of vine nurseries from Burgenland a 0.5 ha large vineyard with different clones was planted. The clones derived from a project where the nurseries selected and certified them and now we are responsible for keeping them available for the vine growers of Burgenland.
