After the sudden death of her husband on March 10th 2001, overnight Illa Szemes became the négociant éleveur of the TIBOR & ILLA SZEMES Winery in Pinkafeld. The feisty widow of this Austrian red wine pioneer and the mother of two children (Anna and Oscar) took over the business in 2001. Illa has been successful in filling the gap that her husband left behind. She has continued the business with ambition, commitment and with an understanding for her Blaufränkisch and so it is no coincidence that her IMPERIAL and TRADITION Blaufränkisch wines are among the top red wines of Austria.
